"Every child has a talent, but most of the talents won’t survive.."

Why is it so and what to do if we’ve found ourselves there where we are today as a society?

Healing society
in practical co-operation

World, where everyone
has a chance for
healty life

Entrepreneurship,
Truthfulness, Creation,
Co-operation

Basic problems, which appear hand-in-hand, in our society are: a lack of trust and lack of co-operation – between professional fields, generations, genders, nations and etc. Every group has its own clear opinion about reality, but it’s hard to find a common language.

Why?

Reason is simple, seemingly, but the solution requires prolonged commited co-operation.

Our history is filled by violence, also a nowadays. Emotional level of human beings is full of traumas which is blocking our endeavors to feel emotional closeness with other people. So we are losing, slowly but surely, contact with reality, moving away from real information which is coming from other people. We hear, but don’t perceive a real context of life. We watch people,
but don’t see them, really.

What is a solution?

Our world offers us lots of possibilities for co-operation, to save the world and our lives. Practical co-operation for a common good is
what connects us, brings us closer. 

NGO Blue Cross Estonia mission is creating practical co-operational projects between the fields and generations in order to connect and heal our society. And also help seekers once again to establish a connection within, to find her/his unique talent and build it up in real life.
