Our story

_

She has learned something that no one can undo but could help fight for the future. 

Being a managing partner at Voltek IT (tech company) and a past Albanian professional singer, she thought of using technology to find the solution and her platforms of raising awareness. The seekers will know they have a place to turn to if they need info to educate themselves or help.  

The biggest fear for a kid is putting shame into the family name. Most kids won’t speak or seek help because of what the family would say or do. Fear makes them immune to the abuse and thinks it is ok. The kids hide the incident, and let it happen is better than bringing shame into their family name.  

After many months of researching and working with the best legal (Eriselda  Paveli), the phycological team with Dr. Aljona Jonuzi, Media (Ermal Qorri) the Educational teachers, we are ready to help these kids and families.
