Every person has a talent. However, intellectual development and potential creative and scientific skills and talents need to be properly nurtured and fully supported. Otherwise, what might have been a talent, may turn out as a demotivated and under-performing teenager/young adult. On the other hand, senior citizens are quite often nowadays left to slowly degrade, and many lose self-esteem by feeling no longer valued nor useful As a social enterprise, we have a dual mission: i. to help enhance young people's creative and scientific skills and potential talents, independently of socio-economic-cultural background, but with a focus on supporting the cultural and intellectual development of young people from families with lesser economic means; ii. to help support and nurture life-long skills of senior citizens, especially those with early signs of dementia, by keeping them focused on revisiting lifelong skills and remain intellectually active and feel proud as valued members of society.
