Carlotas is developing social and emotional skills like empathy, fairness and respect through a program based on playfulness and art.
Our differences make the world an exciting place, believe Carla Douglas, Carla Scheidenegger and Fabiana Guiterrez. With this belief, they founded Carlotas, which produces creative learning material and tutoring formats for schools to promote empathy and teach children to question social norms. The idea is to tackle problems such as bullying and gender stereotyping. Carlotas also offers its training material to companies that want to imbibe these values in their employees. The revenue generated is used for funding the program in public schools. It also offers open-source material online and sells children’s books and educational games.
