We are dozens of humanitarians, teachers, entrepreneurs, doctors, activists, diplomats, workers, creatives (…) and are all invested in social and solidarity causes around the world and most of us directly on the ground. Our purpose it to help those who want to help by sharing simple but important knowledge to give a push and power to whoever want to try harder to make a difference.
TRUST IN NGO'S AND HUMANITARIAN'S IS PARTIALLY BROKEN
Let's be honest, first thing first, humanitarian organisations and world became a powerful social industry, in general if you ask people both helping or locals, they do not trust much anymore the humanitarians or NGO's, for quite a number of reasons. They became more and more inaccessible and grassroots, little organisations or genuine actions for solidarity are often underrated and not much supported.
RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW IF YOU WANT TO SEE AND DO
Helping people became stereotyped, you see it in brochures, you need to travel far away and join this or this, or send 5$ to help little africans or refugees in the war zone, when actually helping is needed all around you as well, you have power to change people lives right here right now. The truth is that sometimes we don't want to see.
YOU CAN'T TRULY HELP PEOPLE IF YOU DON'T HELP YOURSELF FIRST
Helping people, solidarity, caring, is all inside us but we built a lot of fear, deny, excuses, but also we are tired inside, too much to handle already sometimes. Yes, we ALL have deep love within us but we never learned how to use it correctly nor to stabilise our own emotional intelligence to be able to have space within to help ourselves first and people then. You don't build a house on the sand, you need strong fondations.
WE CAN'T HELP EVERYONE BUT WE CAN HELP SOMEONE
We feel guilty and powerless because we don't do or sometime we are just spectators, we are drowned with media-campaigns, wars, famines, diseases, suffering all over the world we have no power ... but you have power over a lot of situations, access to a lot of people who need help, every day, we can all do som much but it is essential to re-learn to take distance and appreciate the little victories, to keep doing a day at a time where you can make a difference.
EVEN LOVE NEED TO BE LEARNED, IT IS EFFORTS, KNOWLEDGE AND PROGRESS
Helping people, to make a difference, change the world (...) These are pretty words but such complex practical, productive, emotional and educational goals that are not taught in the traditional universities or education systems. But what if changing the world wasn't a so big idea? What if anyone could and was actually unconsciously doing day by day? The key is to learn to understand better many simple mechanisms within you and to upgrade it, to improve a few natural skills here and to learn a few notions, principles, lessons and ideas, a day at a time.
YOU NEED HELP, YES YOU.
We all have skills, abilities and above all the will. But to believe in it, in a life which isn't easy nor fair, everyone needs to be heard, understood, helped, inspired, educated, loved and pushed in the right direction. From there, it is simply about progressing one day at a time, to get to know each other better, to understand the world around us differently, to believe in our ability to make a difference, to learn to believe in ourselves, to protect ourselves and to help on the long term with the right trajectory. But what if changing the world wasn't a so big idea? What if anyone could and was actually unconsciously doing day by day?

It's all about trying.
That's the point of this project, to try.
