How can YOU help make an impact? A Chance is all that is needed.
David W. Orr once stated that “The plain fact is that the planet does not need more successful people. But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane and these qualities have little to do with success as we have defined it.”
The success of the project can only be enhanced through the involvement of everyday people working in tandem! Your funding is of paramount importance in order to cement the first step towards the betterment of this weaving cluster.
