OUR WORK, CHANGEMAKERS AND LOCAL YOUTH
People cheer for us, and ask for our help to amplify youth leadership all over the place, but there is only so much one can do. We need to expand. For this we need your help – financially, in-kind, as a person,
Please help us make this gift to our children, the Earth, all species alive today and generations to come.
We have dreamed up many beautiful ways to make it rewarding for you, too!

Our mix of crowdfund + donations + social business
To stay fully independent and flexible, we aim to achieve our aims through a mix of crowdfunded donations and social business (print media sales and services).
The same dual approach is applied by WE, the world’s biggest movement of children helping children, trusted by teachers in 16,000 schools. View the benefits of this dual approach in words and numbers.
We show you our progress online, invite you for “live” meet-ups, and will deliver numbers in our annual reports.
Our Seal of Trust
We invest (a) in recognized hero*ines leading high impact initiatives, that have proven themselves for years. They have toiled full-time, fueled by volunteer spirit and small support. They will put the resources that we generate to good use.
We invest (b) in youth leadership, driven by the spirit of our hero*ines, recognized with 2 UNITED NATIONS Online Voluntee-ring Awards, UNESCO status, the Images Of Voices Of Hope IVOH Award for Eric, and Pacemaker status in Ashoka’s re:imagine learning challenge. Eric is trusted by our hero*ines. Like them, he has zero interest in riches, but wants to see youth leadership spread at record speed.
What would you do with 1 million Dollars / Euros?
We will ACTIVATE ALL THIS to amplify youth leadership all over Planet Earth.
The tree below illustrates the roadmap to empower the Change Generation.
From this tree grows an enormous amount of GOOD fruit.
Everybody spread the word.
It helps big time.

repeatedly, year-round. This is how we activate youth & society.

Donations form the foundation from which our programs thrive. You can also support specific programs in various ways.
… along with neat services that every school should have
designed to empower millions of caring people like you to get involved
Trick Question: should we wait until 2040, or better do it NOW?
We believe that wealth holders have accumulated monetary energy to transform it into really uplifting action at this special time.
One can see the fruits of one’s investment florish for decades! Why wait until … well, the end?
For so many, 1 million is less than 10 quid for you and me. Until they hear of this … let’s crowdfund!
