The world is evolving rapidly and so is the speedy lifestyle of individuals. This evolution has undoubtedly brought ample advantages to humankind, whether it be improved outreach of the market across the globe, the advancement in technological innovation, or leading better living conditions for the people. However, shortcomings do accompany the associated benefits. Respect towards the human values and environment surrounding us have been shadowed in the name of development. Therefore, with the aim to address the importance of conscious living and elevate voices to create a better world for future generations, We Are From The Earth (WAFTE), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization was founded.
WAFTE’s mission is to empower people to cultivate their compassion and live a socially conscious lifestyle.
WAFTE envisions a sustainable world where people live a happy life through applying a socially conscious lifestyle that creates humanistic values for self and others.
WAFTE was founded by Setsuko Hata on May 18th, 2018 in California. The core belief of WAFTE is that in order to make a positive impact in our lives as well as in our societies, we first need to change our hearts and act appropriately. WAFTE believes that a lack of compassion, hope, and social awareness is the major cause of our unhappiness, as well as the surrounding environmental and social problems. Therefore, we aim to restore compassion, raise social awareness, and instill hope among the people.
Since the establishment of WAFTE, we have conducted various events, including workshops, live music, and community events in the Los Angeles area to raise social awareness and to share practical solutions to empower people to adopt the socially conscious lifestyle.
In order to maximize our impact and accomplish our mission, WAFTE has been developing the “WAFTE App”, a mobile application that will create a socially conscious online community. This will also further unite and inspire people to live their best lives and create a positive global change.
