Only empowered citizens can spark and sustain the change needed for a more peaceful, safe, and equal society. This is true for all of the major conflicts the world faces, ranging from climate change to gender equality, from violent extremism to poverty, and beyond. 
 
Our vision is a world where all are educated and empowered with the resources and abilities needed to achieve  and preserve such a global transformation. To such an end, NFP develops and employs innovative technology that can overcome even the largest digital barriers.
