About us

Established by Carina Bekkers in 2016, we activate projects that build capacity for a fair and ethical world. Our guide is win-win, work-life balance and excitement of learning.

“I want to achieve a more satisfying and rewarding balance between work, family and friends. I believe that the key to get there is to collaborate at the right time leveraging my skills, knowledge and resources.”
