collecting clothes and things for shelters; visiting elderly people; cleaning forests and green zones from the garbage.

Our Philosophy

The main idea is autonomy. This is a way of life, not waiting for someone to save the world for you, but act yourself! Since everyone can do something. “If you can, help others, if you cannot, at least do not harm them” Dalai Lama. 

The organizers are people who took the initiative and a thousand troubles, but also remember that everyone can do it. 

The founder of the organisation, Alexandra is a girl who cares no matter what. Activist from her 15 y.o and meeting amazing people who share the same values. 

  • It’s a girl who just passing by an uprooted tree, takes a shovel from a nearby construction site, gathers neighbors, who watch her from the window and plants the tree together. 
  • Collecting warm and necessary things and goes and helping animal shelters, shelters for the homeless,
  • Considers the educational program need changes, gathers like-minded people, going to schools, organises contests, showing educational films, set topics in the classroom.
  • Organize thematic exhibitions and posting informative posters in public places.
  • Publishes udregraund zin “face the truth”.
  • Considers that there are too many clothes and things, organizes the Free Market for people to exchange, and after the event things are going to charity.
  • Bringing not only toys and things, to orphan children, but organizes a team and everyone goes to the orphanage with a program, games, information about education and opportunities.
  • Want’s to rise up topic about people with special needsand help, makes a social film about it and shares it with others.
  • Wants to organize a project to rise up topic of ecology, looking for grant and does it.
  • Does things not for show, but because feels it’s needed. (For long time didn’t registered official organisation, because believes that everything should be made by will, not status).

It is normal not to wait that something will change by itself, but stand and do it. By o organizing social events, Alexandra met many like-minded people who shared the same values, many became friends. 

All these wonderful people have done a lot of good and continue to do, as this is their lifestyle.

 The main thing is not to stay indifferent.
