Our main goal is to provide quality training not only to those that can afford it, but also in disadvantaged group of people.

What is the social impact of your business?
We fight against social and economical exclusion through quality life long learning programs that we offer for free to socially and economically disadvantaged groups of people. We try to explain the benefits of Social Entrepreneurship and give alternative solution to the economic dead end. Our main target is to connect non formal education with the work field.
What do you want to achieve by being part of Impact Hub Scaling?
Within our intentions is to cooperate with other institutions which share the same values with us. So we are going to try to implement successful practices from other countries, update our knowledge and if it is possible to be a part of an educational network dedicated to Social Values.
