Instilling empathy among all people in the Americas.
This is achievable by uniting the Americas one student at a time through university scholarships in which education extends to language, community and immersive cultural engagement.
Now multiply this influence by each student and each country involved. This is our vision.
PACF’s mission is to select university students and grant full scholarships in order to provide students with the opportunity to live, study, and work in the host country.
Through this experience they will strengthen their language abilities, develop a deeper understanding of the country’s culture and an empathy for the people.
WHAT IS EMPATHY?
Empathy (n): the action of understanding, being aware of, being sensitive to, and vicariously experiencing the feelings, thoughts, and experience of another.
Research indicates that empathy is best achieved by speaking the native tongue and living, working, or studying in another culture for a least one-year.
“Empathy is the starting point for creating a community and taking action. It’s the impetus for creating change.” – Max Carver
