experienced members in the field of Human Rights and Legal support to
individuals and organizations thay might require it.

  2. Education to children in rural remote areas.
  3. Programs aimed to youth people, conveying to them an interest for
    an active participation in public life, and giving them the means to
    become social transformers.
