We try to create opportunities for individuals, communities and civil  societies to their development and capacity building We would like to enrich the educational, social and cultural life of young people both in UK and outside We would like to offer equal opportunities to young people with fewer opportunities Our organization is aimed towards community of youth development, because we believe that young people can play an active role in the public life and become partners in the decision making processes, and a driving force in the shaping of the society they live in.
We would like to contribute to the formation of new successful generation, which is determined to change the world for the better in a stronger social cohesion that includes minorities and migrants.
