Can social entrepreneurship be successful?
Helpific will participate at The Festival of Opinion Culture 14.-15.08.2015. Festival of Opinion Culture is a meeting place for interesting thoughts, new ideas and new initiatives; a place that will boost people’s courage and self-esteem and make them ask themselves “what can i do?”.

Life without borders? Yes!
On 20-23 August Nordic Inspiration Conference 2015 "Beyond borders" will give you a chance to be part of the lives of people who have overcome their human boundaries. Nordic Inspiration Conference 2015 is organized by Junior Chamber International Estonia in association with other JCI Nordic group chambers. Junior Chamber International CO with Helpific is promoting boundless goodwill and Helpific will set up an interactive “Testing your senses” area where all conference visitors can try the almost impossible challenges people with special needs are facing daily. There will also be a special project during the conference where installations are placed into city area. The goal of installations is to carry out a campaign to break the prejudices prevailing in society about people with special needs and to expand the awareness of potential volunteers, who today still do not act as a volunteer. The area and installations will be there on Friday, 21st of August from 9am to 5pm.

Visitors and Helpific platform enthusiasts can make their contribution into developing the Helpific platform mechanism that allows to exchange messages inside the platform. The estimated cost of the IT development is 5000 euros.
