Mission & Vision

 

Our Vision: 

To enable refugees to become rebuilders of their own lives and the communities where they are living, by promoting business projects that provide social services to vulnerable people in Europe as well as in the MENA region.

Our Mission: 

The aim of the foundation is to work with newcomers, in particular - but not exclusively - with refugees from the Middle East to promote social enterprise. To equip and empower them with values, education, experiences and skills.
We envisage to achieve this through:
- Conducting social impact studies in Europe and Middle East region
- Apply for grants (corporate and government)
- Coordinate execution of social enterprise projects in Europe and Middle East region
- Connecting donors with social entrepreneurs
