FREE TO GROW
Dear Project Manager,
We know how difficult it is for you to find funds and resources for your organization, and ways to succeed in organizing quality activities and successful European Projects.
This is the reason why we want to tell you our story…
It was back in 2000 when we started our business, and we remember perfectly the efforts made to look for opportunities for growth. From events to training courses to improve our skills, we were always looking for fundraising opportunities, and thinking of new initiatives, with the goal to grow our organization by combining passion and professionalism. For 15 years, we have been working locally, in our community, and implementing educational projects and activities for children and their families.
But in 2014 something changed…
When we discovered the Erasmus Plus Programme, we understood we were ready to bring about change not only locally, but also internationally.
But why should the Erasmus Plus Programme be a good investment?
For first-time visitors to this world, it’s understandable that there are doubts about whether it’s worth committing to something so competitive.
Similarly, for those who have already had the opportunity to work in this field, it is understandable that doubts may arise in case of negative experiences.
- You may be afraid that, despite investing a lot of time in understanding and approaching European projects, you won’t be able to make them economically sustainable.
- You may be afraid that, once a project is approved, you won’t manage to coordinate and implement it by yourself.
- You may not have enough time to stay updated on all funding opportunities, and, if you have already participated in the implementation of a European Project in the past.
- You may be afraid to work together, once again, with unreliable partners, losing you time and energies, and wasting the opportunity to work on potentially high-quality projects.
In all these cases, the key is to start with an advantage alongside an expert organization, with which to grow together, share difficulties and successes, and benefit from a program that aims to create partnerships that bring positive change in Europe and beyond.
We are also aware that designing European projects is not easy.
It takes time, dedication, and brilliant ideas are fundamental, but above all, the strength stands in the motivation of the team, and in the belief in the potential of the projects designed.
“Success comes when talent meets opportunity”
Today is a day of opportunities because if you have come this far, it means that you are probably ready to jump in.
WE ARE people who have gone through all the fears and difficulties described above, and we are also the same people who have succeeded and overcome these difficulties, becoming experts in such a hard but inspiring and amazing field, which offers several opportunities that are always growing, and where you can only improve.
Today, we are ready to take a further step in our journey, and we hope you want to follow us. We are ready to share all our knowledge, experience, and know-how, with organizations and people ready to work together to “enrich lives, open minds“, quoting the motto of the European Commission.
Another story… WHAT WE HAVE DONE

We are an established non-profit organization present nationwide for 18 years. Every year, we provide hundreds of educational activities, involving 400 teachers, 60 schools, and almost 6,000 children and families.

Over the last 8 years, we have specialized in the designing, writing, and implementation of European projects, always focusing on “our” topics, such as Sport, Education, and Social Entrepreneurship, and we have developed and structured a system to do our work properly and effectively.
OUR WORK IN NUMBERS

- We offer more than 60 international training opportunities per year to our educational staff;
- We help and support our member organizations to submit projects in every call of the Erasmus Plus Program, and the success rate of the EU projects of our partners’ organizations increases by 15% every year.
