Raise Your Helping Hand
We are a grassroots initiative looking forward to a cultural reset working together with real, genuine and intelligent society members.
We believe in a world where it’s not just bread and circuses.
Our mission is to invest in underserved communities in order to empower the next generation and educate the older generation. We do that, by creating educational programs, resources, events, news and providing necessary resources in underprivileged areas. We believe in smart fund allocation, and therefore we employ minimal staff.
