Empowering Changemakers Globally

UMANO - 501c3 Nonprofit champions long-term solutions over temporary fixes by spotlighting and directly supporting the unsung changemakers in social issues, animal justice, and environmental advocacy, among others



Umano envisions a world transformed by the power of stories, where the narratives of changemakers inspire individuals to be the architects of change. We believe in storytelling’s ability to shape actions and behaviors, fostering a global community united in creating lasting impact. Through empathy and inspiration, we aim to catalyze a movement towards a more equitable and sustainable future for living beings.

Advocating for Empathy

Poverty, social injustice, conflict, inequality, and discrimination are not the root causes themselves but manifestations of a deeper lack of empathy in resource distribution and social dynamics. Our mission is to address these underlying sources of human suffering, and we find inspiration in sharing stories of change-makers who champion empathy and positive transformation.
