This section is your compass for the right people, deeds and causes with which the world is a better and brighter place to live: we will introduce you to activists, advocates and defenders, volunteers, philanthropists and donors and many, many more examples. with short or long and unpronounceable names, and no wonder you walk past each other every day in the streets, without even suspecting how important their role is in breathing, walking and living free.


Our team travels non-stop through streets, towns, mountains and seas to introduce you to the good on the go and living examples.


This section presents the faces of good with a human face and will tell you stories and legends about them. Here you will find everything about human rights activists from different cultures, eras, religions and peoples: from colorful historical facts through documentary prose and urban legends to ancient myths.


While in the Activists section we present the human faces of the good, here we will meet you with the collective good and the chain reaction, from which each individual person is only a link—small, yes, but important! The first spark for any human rights cause is always something small but important: an idea for an initiative, a single thought or decision. Because small things very often turn a whole life upside down.
