Hi Potential Co-Worker,
My name is Abhay Singh Sachal. I'm the Co-Founder and Executive Director of Break The Divide Foundation.
About Break The Divide:
We're on a mission to connect students across the world through technology. Break The Divide Foundation is a non-profit organization that connects youth to initiate in dialogue across the world using our app & network of student-led chapters. Through this personal connection, students collaborate to create projects & we provide them the resources to make their projects happen.
As humans, we learn best when we are passionate about certain subjects. It is easiest to become involved in world issues when we care about them personally. That is why through Break The Divide, students are given the opportunity to learn about others from a first-hand perspective and take action on issues facing communities. We believe that we're the team that can support youth in tackling issues across the world with a combination of service, technology, and resources to build the action plans they need to get there. We believe with the technology available- there's never been a better time in human history to connect humans & create change than now.
