I witnessed how a Israeli program, Unistream OPEN FUTURE in Slovakia, became one of the most successful and influential initiatives in the country. This program is not only working well but it is also significantly changing the world of innovation and education in Israel. OPEN FUTURE´s potential is equally strong. Being able to contribute to new opportunities for talented young people in deprived communities carries along a huge inner satisfaction.
If we manage to provide high-quality education and programs for all groups of children and young people, regardless the place and family they are born to, we can start to believe that the society in our country can become a mature one.
