We are different from other organizations for the reasons that we believe by win- win strategy: our beneficiaries have to come with burning desire to fight poverty by breakthrough challenge. At the same time, our beneficiaries are our members by paying monthly membership fee, enabling them to create new ideas by contributions and organizational task according to their educational background and life experience.
