This organization was founded as proprietorship focused on tuition classes, but then there originated a need of widen services more related to the field of non-profit services and community help increasing general awareness of important topics as education, environment and natural protection, intercultural dialogue etc. Therefore there came natural step to found an NGO to promote activities towards community and get donations, fundings and participate in grant schemes to help the performance.
