Our Mission: To promote a balance between one’s physical, mental, emotional, and social wellbeing through experiential learning while offering an insight into global welfare and an individual’s ability to improve it.
Our Vision: We envision a populous that is interactive, engaged and motivated to improve the wellbeing of themselves, along with those in their local and global communities. By understanding the causes, manifestations, and consequences of underdevelopment, then addressing areas of need with a ‘humanitarian toolkit’, we aim to see people explore their inner selves allowing them to grow emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.
- Equality – every individual is of the human race
- Accessibility – education is a basic human right which should transcend boundaries
