– Nelson Mandela

Committed to the Principle of “Leaving no one behind”. Leave no one behind (LNOB) as the central, transformative promise of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It represents the unequivocal commitment of all UN Member States to eradicate poverty in all its forms, end discrimination, and exclusion, and reduce the inequalities and vulnerabilities that leave people behind and undermine the potential of individuals and of humanity as a whole.

In a cooperative with which we help each other to master skills and qualifications that suit the environment in which we find ourselves. A cooperative in which we can gain work experience that contributes to our development. A cooperative from which we can start our own businesses and to which we can continue to contribute so that others inspired by our path on their own path can also accelerate. And we can strengthen each other permanently. We are going to have to overcome obstacles. But as we overcome, we will be building a legacy for our children.
