WHO WE ARE
WE ARE A CONNECTING LINK BETWEEN THOSE THAT NEED HELP AND THOSE THAT CAN HELP
To be a bridge through which every individual and organization in the society has access to the human and natural resources they need to thrive.
To raise a generation of young people that will rule, subdue, and dominate the world with a positive perspective.
Suicide prevention remains a universal challenge. Every year, suicide is among the top 20 leading causes of death globally for people of all ages. It is responsible for over 800,000 deaths, which equates to one suicide every 40 seconds. Every life lost represents someone’s partner, child, parent, friend or colleague. For each suicide, approximately 135 people suffer intense grief or are otherwise affected. This amounts to 108 million people, per year, who are profoundly impacted by suicidal behaviour.
