What we do?

Our goals are to initiate, run and support educational, social and cultural activities for and for the local community and to build intercultural dialogue between representatives and representatives of different cultures. We want to influence the creation of a world without hatred, full of intentional understanding, for which we care about together, starting from our own backyard, but also going far beyond the horizon.
We promote and organize volunteering in the local and international dimension for social change and personal development.
We operate in the field of non-formal education. We organize activities aimed at transcultural, anti-discrimination and civic education.
We operate locally. We support the local community in the social and cultural dimension. We start the changes from our own backyard.
