Doing Good

A compassion education initiative by The Forgotten International.

At “The Forgotten International” we want to encourage young people in the United States to be aware of all that they have, and begin to think of ways to benefit others and the world we all share. We feel the most impactful way we can better this world is to empower the next generation of philanthropists and world changers, to turn empathy into action. We do this by working with educators around the country to take our curriculum “Doing Good” into their schools and share it with the young people they serve. One lesson that these young people have learned in this program is that doing good, not only helps those they serve, but enriches their own lives at the same time. It is a lesson they can carry with them as they decide who they wish to become and how they plan to make a positive difference in their communities and our world.


Our Programs

The Doing Good Program’s intention is to teach young people what it means to be human (how we all want and need the same things), how we can care for ourselves AND others at the same time, and how to turn our empathy into action in an effort to make the world a better place. Compassion can be considered as today’s one word summation of the golden rule. If we expect compassion and empathy to flower on a collective level, then we must plant their seeds in our children.
