  • To encourage the sense of initiative and entrepreneurship, promoting intercultural dialogue and fostering social inclusion through a non-formal learning approach.
  • To develop strategies to face common concerns for the European society, such as racism and xenophobia while fostering intercultural and inter-religious dialogue between volunteers and local community based on common values of freedom, tolerance and respect of human rights.
