Our primary goal is to seed and grow these innovative ideas in local communities, in order to empower local disadvantaged people to overcome prejudices and move beyond their limits. Disadvantaged groups are identified in terms of Race, Gender, and Disability.
We work toward increasing public awareness, empathy, and friendship in order to close the barriers with “otherness”. We also aim to help educate local young people to overcome challenges and develop leadership skills.
Our work primarily focuses on health, education and related areas. We do not get involved in religion and politics.
