TAKING MATTERS INTO OUR OWN HANDS

A CRISIS WHICH HAS FUNDAMENTALLY HARMED THE STRENGTH OF WESTERN ECONOMIES, ESPECIALLY THE YOUNGER POPULATIONS. VIA THE NOAH INITIATIVE WE HOPE TO BRING ABOUT A NATIONAL CHANGE IN DIRECTION IN FAVOR OF YOUNG ADULTS, WHICH WILL LEAD TO AN ECONOMIC GROWTH AS WELL AS TO A SOCIO-CULTURAL BREAKTHROUGH IN THE ENTIRE COUNTRY.
