Breaking borders
Helpific participated in the conference "Beyond Borders" arranged by Junior Chamber International Estonia in August to surmount borders personally, technologically and culturally. Collaboration resulted in artistic formed campaign to encourage all the members of community to recognise people with disabilities as individuals who are no different from fellow citizens and raise awareness of those who are not volunteers yet. Heroes of the installation "Life Without Borders" are six people with disabilities who need assistance every day. In spite of disability, they all are very positive and strong personalities with different interests and knowledge. As a volunteer, you can help them to live their life fully, without borders.
