Our aim is to provide these programs with financial and technical support to help them grow and succeed in the long-term. Probably, you’re asking yourself what happens to the $249 that you pay to join our Program’s Network; well, let us explain. With this payment, we make sure that the projects receive their donation in order to buy materials that will help them grow and help a greater portion of the community, we also make sure that each of the projects is using their resources accordingly to their mission.
