We believe that every individual, however rich or poor, strong or weak, influential or otherwise, has an important contribution to make towards a more peaceful and sustainable world.
Today significant numbers of people around the world feel forgotten, disenfranchised and disempowered, frequently asking, “what about us?” Many people also feel that they have no ability to participate in positive activities that make their communities a better place. In several instances, there are examples of people who want to do good for their society but they may not know the best way to proceed in a positive way working in harmony with existing structures. This often leads to:
Confrontation between citizens and institutions
Damage to societies to the public interest

Therefore it is important to assist individuals who are passionate about building a positive future to do so in a positive way. It is also particularly important to include disadvantaged people; those who would otherwise have limited or no ways to contribute to improving their communities and to improving the world.
