Every child has the fundamental right to believe in their dreams becoming a reality. They have the basic human right to believe that no task is insurmountable.
Unfortunately, not every child is currently given the opportunity and reinforcement to believe this. iStandAbove seeks to change this enormous disservice to the youth of the world by utilizing and teaching our three core values: leadership, creativity, and teamwork.
These three values give the youth the essential tools needed to accomplish life-long goals amidst adopting the mindset and attitude of a leader, a pioneer and a team player.
iStandAbove will provide the youth with academic, sporting, and relief resources in order to teach the three core values and propel them over obstacles towards the attainment of their goals. All projects and programs that iStandAbove provides are socially, economically, and politically sustainable. By utilizing all of these ideals, iStandAbove will help to give the youth of the world the tools they will need for a brighter future and a better tomorrow for themselves and the global community we live in.
