We believe in giving back to society. We found one great way to do so is in supporting organizations dedicated to improving the lives of those from disadvantaged populations. Our work within these groups includes the development of a leadership team with a clear shared vision, well communicated both inside the organization and to the outside world, with the proper infrastructure to mange both the delivery arm as well as the founding activities of the entity. We are always open for requests from such organizations and will try our best to help when we can.
Women's group "Tanishka"
We work with the Tanishka foundation - a symbiotic network of voluntary forums that works towards restoring dignity to women at the grassroots level, through social, physical and financial security. These women come together on a regular basis to talk about challenges in their life, but also to discuss the challenges in the society around them and how to tackle them, such as women’s health, young girls' safety, pollution, public transport, etc. The network currently includes 110,000 members in Maharashtra area and is growing. We are currently working on expanding this concept into Mexico.
Children's group "Sport is your Gang"
"Sport Is Your Gang” targets youths from challenging backgrounds, encouraging them to take up Muaythai training and, through their participation in training and dialogue programs, to be inspired for positive self-development and a healthy lifestyle. Rather than belonging to a gang or participating in a violent lifestyle, the spirit of the project is that sport can become a family, a team and a community. After the training, kids sit together and discuss the issues they are facing in life using Dr Amir Kfir's Nonflict forum methodology. The project has currently reached over 2000 participants in Mexico and this is just the beginning.
"Sport Is Your Gang" has become a world-recognized project winning the SportAccord Spirit of Sport Award 2014.
Peace building is a process of conflict transformation that involves addressing deep-rooted structural and cultural violence. Sport is the universal language for dialogue and interaction. It fosters understanding, tolerance and trust.
In 2011, during a YPO/Harvard program at the age of 14, Kristina came up with the idea to build a global platform to help teenagers with the issues they face. She tried to give love and support to the people around her. Unfortunately, in 2017, Kristina Belyakova passed away. Even a life as short as hers was not too short to change the world. Following in her footsteps, NOTALONE named its virtual friend in her honor. The NOTALONE app provides the best possible way for our users to find the emotional help they seek…and need
