We believe education is an integral part of human development. Lack of education causes many social and economic issues. We contribute our effort in the development of capacity building programs focusing on helping people to find long term solutions. Our aim is to assist in the transfer of knowledge to enable communities so that they may acquire new skills, have a better and sustainable living while creating a positive change for the environment.

Our activities range from artisans training in using better techniques to providing sewing class for women in low income housing areas to organizing creative activities to children with special needs or building community composting training programs. We work in strategic partnerships with volunteers, local companies, and independent experts in various fields.
