  • Description


    We are an international non-profit NGO with a base in South Sweden. Our main focus is on
    empowering women and youth, discovering hidden competencies, social entrepreneurship, and culture. It has both local activities and international projects, even though at the moment there is very little life due to corona…There are two places for that: one is a social initiatives incubator in an urban environment and another one is a vocational training location is in the rural forest area. The organization is 100% run by volunteers. The core of organisation and the motivation to join it is in faith in the untainted force of experiment and courage to face the changes in one’s life: all activities and project in one way or another are oriented to question the normality, be positive and
    constructive about one’s options in life.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Sweden is a country of nature and the outdoors. Solitude and mindfulness are best practiced here, where old villages and towns are kept preserved through centuries. Safe area for discovery and travel, commonly respected rules of gender equality and political correctness.

  • Help


    We constantly plan activities and carry around project ideas but lack help with administration and logistics around it, all from cleaning and cooking to making posters and delivering them around the city.
    In the rural house, we are dealing with a long-term renovation/building where learning by doing has been a motto for the last two years so some physical help will be required.
