At PENDA we believe in the power of education!
PENDA consists of a small group of young professionals aiming at providing a framework for people to contribute in the education of young and talented students.
Every once in a while we come across initiatives intended for the support of a cause. More often than not, those initiatives are limited to individual efforts or a small group of people. As a result, the potential success of the initiative is affected. However, the chances for the success of such initiatives can be improved if they attract more support and take place in a well-organized manner.
With PENDA we present a non-governmental organization which will function under the premises of total transparency and trustworthiness. We want to become the go-to tool for people interested to contribute in education. Our goal is to provide scholarships for successful students, but not only that, given decades of cumulative expertise among us, we will provide guidance and mentoring to students in their path to education.
Our mission is to help in fostering the next generation of professionals which in turn can contribute in their community. While doing so, we want to establish a long-lasting system which will support this cause for the generations to come.
If you share the same vision with us, welcome on board and get involved!
