They endeavour to raise funds through their own events and unique ideas, in order to build schools and opportunities for children and young people caught in the poverty trap in the some of the poorest and more corrupt parts of the world.
They also wish to create a different type of charity in Ireland; one that utilises young and talented people to keep creating new and positive methods to achieve their many goals and aspirations.
