Our values

Uniqueness

The person is at the core of all our actions, at its value is not defined by the circumstances in which they find themselves. We promote the uniqueness of each person and support them to reach their true potential

Togetherness: to accompany and be accompanied

The power of ‘together’ is the force that brings us together to change destinies

We learn from experiences and put the lessons we learned to good use:

Through access to education we learn and evolve, capitalizing on each experience to its fullest potential

Involvement of stakeholders:

We aim to involve everyone: beneficiaries, specialists, partners, donors, the private sector

Our Mission

We promote education and social inclusion of the most vulnerable people in our communities and we support them to become protagonists of their own lives.

We have been here for over 27 years and put empathy fist in our activity. We work daily to offer equal access to education and a normal childhood for disadvantaged children. We encourage them to build an autonomous life, healthy relationships and a high level of self-esteem.

Our Vision

From our point of view, each person is unique and can make the most of their talents through equal access to education and integration within their communities, regardless of their differences.

We believe education changes lives and through the power of empathy we aim to develop a safer, more inclusive community, where each person has the right to a better future.
