We intervene directly in the areas and communities, using a holistic approach and doing direct social work.

We are a civil organization that promotes social volunteering, we operate with a flat structure and we work directly with the communities. We undertake teamwork and promote the self-development of communities. Our projects are carried out on site, without intermediaries. In addition, we offer a real and fun method of cultural exchange.
