About us

We promote compassion for people, kindness towards animals and respect for our beautiful planet.

Since 2006, ACTAsia has been making a big impact on the lives we touch through Caring for Life Education.

When an Asian sociologist and an Asian veterinarian came together to help Asian cultures evolve into caring societies, ACTAsia was born. We’re addressing the root cause of problems in society, with the future in mind, working towards sustainable social change through education.

Pei Su’s story

When I was a child in Asia, not many of us grew up with pets. It was unusual to show empathy towards animals, but more fundamentally, it was unusual for parents to openly demonstrate love towards their children. This emotional reserve is common in parts of Asia, and tends to inhibit children from developing social and emotional intelligence, the kind of intelligence necessary to become a responsible adult.

Pei Su is the founder of ACTAsia.
