Our mission is to empower and integrate Third Age people, Women and Immigrants through education, culture and technology.

Our vision is Third Age people, Women and Immigrants to gain a leading role in the productive chain as well as in market and social development.

Through cultural, technological and educational projects, we support the three main categories affected by the demographic change:

Third age

  • We empower Third Age people
  • We promote active aging
  • We reinforce intergenerational solidarity
  • We recognize Third Age people as a key player in the productive procedure
  • We upgrade Third Age people’s position in the community


  • We promote gender equality in the working sector
  • We advocate women’s education
  • We upgrade women’s position in the community
  • We encourage women having multiple roles

Second Generation Immigrants

  • We establish preconditions for immigrants’ social integration
  • We support interculturalism and exchange
  • We promote immigrants’ education and mobilization
  • We reinforce immigrants’ right to work legally
