What We Do

What are your aspirations for humanity? and Why do you wish to affiliate with CARTHA? are the two questions which guide our selection of CARTHA Fellows who then get to hone their Collaborative Competence skillsets in our non-hierarchical Aspirations Exchanges. CARTHA specializes in the design and launch of humanity-centered, intergenerational partnership models, curricular programs, and community dialogues ("Glocalizers"). Not guided by money or prestige concerns, we leverage the energies and talents of high-aspiration individuals: To link academic research translation to human endeavors and community partnerships; and thereby, To produce collaborative leadership development programs with Carthans to advance humanitarian endeavors. Our C2G2 training model (described in our founder's 2009 paper) produces Glocalizers that are practical, flexible, and timely to advance Collaborative Literacy, Learning, and Doing across generations, regions, and sectors. CARTHA's Manodharma Program, led by Raj Rajagopal, supports the Winterim India experiential learning courses and a Book Distribution & Literacy partnership with FirstBook of Washington, DC. Several Carthans (including CARTHA Fellows) are starting a new CARTHA Student Chapter at the University of Iowa in Fall 2015.
