Who We Are

Who We Are

We are a group of committed student and adult volunteers who are:

What We Do

Once we can identify a sustainable and reliable solution, we bring communities together to work towards a common goal that will promote a nurturing educational environment for children in the context of their mother tongue and cultural identity.

Our projects develop social infrastructures within schools and/or communities that honor individuality. We empower individuals by acknowledging each member of a community has something unique to offer.

Our Aims
