“Well-presented information and using reliable sources can become knowledge, knowledge can become action, and action can become change”
It is incredible how a small action from many people can really make a difference. We always say “If you want to move the world, first move yourself”. Even our name was born from the thought that many drops, many small and seemingly insignificant amounts of water, can fill a bucket of huge volume. The same can be applied to the joint effort of human beings for a common goal, history proves this.
Our team spends hundreds of hours a month researching and writing, developing an ad-free website and guiding our contributors. As we want to give voice to everyone passionate about one of our topics, not only to journalists or bloggers, we put our efforts into giving feedback to our contributors, and helping them become better writers.
If you want to take part in our mission, now you can really help us make this platform the best it can be, and reach all corners of the world in the hopes of giving a voice to those who do not have one.
