Sustainability . 


The idea behind Uno is that both individuals and society could never be fully complete if they do not learn to interact and to give to each other their very best.To help this process, Uno focuses its activities on four fundamental activities.



For all these problems, solutions could only come from a collective approach that puts together individuals and their communities. This concept fully embodied the spirit behind Uno. We are fighting social exclusion of all the marginalized social classes that are the most at risk of being left behind due to difficulties in social activities, studies, job placement, etc.

Help up to achieve our goals


We are working towards a future in which society and individuals work in synchronization with one another. A future for a world in which no one is left behind and no one wants to isolate themselves from their/hers/his community. In order to achieve this vision, we focus our activities on equality, mutual respect and empathy for other human beings.


We aim to promote the concept of Life-Long learning, intercultural dialogue, social inclusion, gender equality, sustainable lifestyles, as well as the development of Social and Emotional intelligence skills. By promoting Non-Formal education methods, we try to reach the widest possible audience with our projects. Reach as many minds as possible and touch as many hearts as possible with a view of  shaping the world of today and tomorrow.

We have a great team
