We can not send a therapist to every child, but we can pack love, hope and therapy in wonderful stories and send them to every child.
Imad Elabdala came to Sweden as a refugee from Syria. His first book transforms the difficult stories of war into an epic adventure, to provide children with positive and healing mental images, and to balance the traumatic memories that they have kept from their experiences.
"Impact Hub is a unique place, it's the only place that holds a great balance between warmth and being a professional environment. Getting in the program 'Powered by Impact Hub' gives me the opportunity to connect with many great change leaders. Being around such people does not only make your project grow, but makes you grow from the inside as a person."
Imad Elabdala, Founder of Kidnovation

Traditional aid is based on the concept that if someone is ill, we will send a doctor. If we send a doctor to work for a few months, that person will be able to treat a few hundred people. However, if we educate a local doctor he or she can treat thousands during a professional life. Through crowdfounding, Help to Help enables scolarships to university students in East Africa. Students who otherwise would not get the opportunity.
