Who We Are

About Us

Since 2013, It is our privilidge to help the ones in need

Our journey with helping people started when we were volunteering for a charity called Yellow Scarf (if you would like to find more about their good work please see their website http://www.yellowscarf.org.uk) As we are forever grateful for the experience our friends provided we feel like it is time for us to focus on different problems: discrimination, hate crime and mental issues connected to them.  Our time with Yellow Scarf has made us realise that almost all social and mental struggles are based on fear, prejudice and inability to communicate and solve problems.

Our team has decided to dedicate their lives to remove as much inequality, injustice and harm as we possibly can. We want to achieve that with the most powerful tools available- friendship, knowledge and happiness. You cannot fear what you know, you will not discriminate what you like and you will not try to hurt something that makes you happy. These rules have served us well through our time with Yellow Scarf and we feel that in today’s troubling times they are more important than ever.
