An Edinburgh Charity
We believe that “People Know How” to identify their needs and the solutions that will help them fulfil their potential and solve social issues. Often, people don’t realise that they “know how” and that’s where we come in – unlocking ideas for a better future, today. Based in Edinburgh, Scotland, we are incredibly international, receiving volunteers and interns from all around the world; whilst in the same breath we engage with local people, and local issues.
