ABOUT US

We are an initiative created by a group of students taking part in the GSL completion, aiming to tackle some of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. 

We connect students whose parents are living in different countries to work, with educational resources and a wellbeing forum full of insights from professional psychologists.

Here is a safe place to learn, grow, prosper, and connect. We'll get through all tough times, Hand-In-Hand.

WHy Us

Our website uses much less data than Youtube which makes it much more accessible to students around the world. It is also much safer as there are no ads, and videos have been specifically chosen by teachers making sure that they have been explained in the simplest way possible while conserving their correctness. We also answer any question students have and have a monitored forum where students can safely connect. In addition, trained psychologists are always ready whenever students want to connect, which will be done safely, and anonymously to get as much help as they need. Our website is completely free of charge and is there to support students as best as we can.
