To whom it may concern

We are tiny, we are small. Nobody cares about small human rights organizations; about the handful of people we make a difference for.

We struggle to find new permanent members, because understandably, you need to have a passion for commitment, for fairness, for justice and equality, but we also require professionalism and seriousness.

We are in that limbo now, we are completely self-funded, besides a few helping hands we are truly grateful for.

We are upgrading the services we offer and finding new precious collaborators, which will help us help. We are big enough to have had a real impact on a few lives, yet not big enough to turn those lives around, and those few lives are not enough lives for us to qualify for funding.

What we do have is integrity, and professionalism.

We are transparent: there are two active parts to this Organization, myself and my Italo-Spanish-Colombian partner. We are both real, and uncompromising: he believes we are all the same. I believe we all deserve to live a life of dignity.

Yet we could do so much more. My greatest wishes at the moment are a large office and workshop space, enough money to pay our own salaries, and being able to hire. Hire and encourage the people we help to help themselves, start their own business, flourish, rather than let themselves be diminished by a society where success is entirely based on who you know: they can’t compete, as they have lived unseen for years.

Soon, I hope to continue telling their stories, as we had started to do on our YouTube channel.
