A community of great people
Our foundation is committed to promoting a good environment for the residents of the neighborhood in the broadest sense of the word. This includes: mapping infrastructural issues such as the state of the road network, street lighting, recreation; promoting the mutual contact between residents through activities, events, mailing list and newsletters; maintaining contacts with relevant persons, organizations and the government and much more.
In addition, by means of the website and connecting to the email list, the foundation provides a forum for residents where matters of general interest to residents come to the fore such as: events, progress in refurbishing infrastructure, developments in the neighborhood, thefts and other unsafe situations and contacts with the government.
