Empowering our youth to save the earth
What we do
We plan and support amazing projects that help change the lives of disadvantaged children and young people from across different regions of the world, educate and empower our youths and get them off the street of unemployment into environmentally sustainable employ.
We’ve worked on improving the lives of over 25,000 young people through direct practice.
Young people from different backgrounds have a huge impact on us and all our activities. They highlight those parts of the society that are broken, so we can help them in all possible ways to regain hope and flourish in life.
