Empathy Project envisions a future society where people of any background can contribute to a better world, humbly beginning from empathy.
Since 2018, we have delivered three Empathy Projects in various regions in Indonesia. Every Empathy Project involves at least 1000 elementary school students, 300 volunteers, 250 parents and teachers, and 250 community members.
Behind Empathy Project
Since it was initiated in 2013, SociopreneurID has identified that the key success of bringing impact to society is through collaborative actions. This is what drives us to strive in creating ‘Responsible Ecosystem’ where every individual in the community altruistically takes part in creating a better place to live in. In line with this thinking, we realized that education is a vital indicator to empower someone’s capacity and capability so that he is able to take part in the aforementioned role. In a greater sense, each of them will be a node in a greater network of like-minded people, forming Responsible Ecosystem. This is what drives us to systemically transform education in Indonesia.
However, the responsible ecosystem cannot be created without creating empathy first. Empathy will change one’s perception to tackle various problems around him, it encourages him to involve and be a part of the solution. We believe if he practices it regularly, he will create positive impacts on others. Thus, if a pool of like-minded people who share the same thought and taking actions collectively, they will change the world. That is raison d’etre of Empathy Project (EP).
