empowerment is our middle name!
Why we do it? Because spreading awareness needs to be connected with action. We start by addressing the issues we work by awareness projects and then their natural evolution is to become actions on the field. Following our motto of “empowering lives from passion to action”, our main projects are:
International project of social and economic empowerment of people, always with a deep focus on each individual and how we can impact his/her life through self-awareness, personal development, and novel opportunities for growing and breaking the poverty cycle. It’s about:
