I've got in contact with World Genesis Foundation at the Atlantykron Summer Academy in Capidava, Romania, this past summer and i really enjoyed the time spent there. The event gathers young people and not only, from different parts of the country and the world, people that have the thirst for knowledge in different domains such as astronomy, science fiction, photography,radio and so on. I loved what they did back there, the way they connect these people is just wonderful! I think it changes the destiny of a young fellow that comes on that island where the camp takes place, because the way this works is unique, it tries actually to make them discover what they really love to do and endorse it. Like others said here, World Genesis Foundation has been taking the right steps of bringing the youth together through education, making them more aware of what they are capable to do in their lives. I'm really happy to work with them and looking forward to continue my collaboration in future events and i really encourage everyone to engage in their programs.

I had the pleasure to get to know the organization as part of the UNESCO Clubs conference in New York City. I had an absolutely amazing time there, met amazing people I still keep in touch with and found out more about the Foundation's mission. I am proud to continue working with World Genesis Foundation and can recommend anyone to engage in its unique and inspiring programmes.

In today's generation, the World Genesis Foundation is among those that continue to support the development of the youth and the establishment of peace worldwide. The World Genesis Foundation and the US Federation of UNESCO Clubs, Centers and Associations manage to reach out to a global community who share such passion of making the world a better place. In fact, they are able to reach and help out vibrant young people from as far as India, the Philippines, Indonesia, Russia, Italy and many other countries. As a young student leader from Southeast Asia, I can personally testify to how WGF, and its passionate team, has enabled youth like me to become better servant leaders. They have many projects, some of which are youth camps and international youth competitions. Peace is much needed in our world today. I personally attest to how such Foundation, especially under the guidance of warm-spirited, generous and peace-loving Ms. Heather Caton, is able to further this mission for the world.

I volunteered twice from Ireland as photographer for the Atlantykron annual summer academy in Romania sponsored by The World Genesis Foundation.I was welcomed by friendly volunteers and enthusiastic participants all excited to gain and share new knowledge and skills. I was very much impressed with the organisations high standard and variety of academic programmes that were offered at the academy. The World Genesis Foundation from what I saw definitely adheres to it's mission of ' leaving no child without hope for the future' and I look forward to volunteering with them again.

It is very important to give equal opportunities to young people in the world. Unfortunately, not everybody is able to pay for education and get some useful and good knowledge. World Genesis Foundation improving this situation with there educational programs. I have been taking part in the “Atlantykron” cultural program and a saw a lot interest on the faces of students to the subject. It is also a way to make new friends from different countries. And this is a basis of peas from my point of view.

The World Genesis Foundation stands true and far exceeds it's mission statement of leaving no child with hope for the future. It is one of the few Non-Profit organisations around the world moving forward towards achieving its goal of helping the young men and women to fulfil their dreams and doing so, 'tirelessly'.
Working closely with the organisation in the past years as their partner in work and a volunteer from India i have closely noticed the professionalism and dedication of their managing body who always seem so focused towards the organisation's Vision of helping children in any and all ways possible. Be it through education or bringing the youth from various nationalities together by way of cultural events and in many more ways they have always stood strong in their work.

The young who participate in WGF programs go forward with many more opportunities in front of them as they become adults. These young bright lights are the future of an educated, heart-centered, evolved Human Race.

World Genesis Foundation is an organization which not only supports and encourages youths, but also helps to express your own views on different matters. This year I participated at the Worldwide Future of Education Youth Essay Contest organized by WGF and UNESCO and had a chance to write my views, my ideas and my imagination regarding the future of education. After the submission of essay I realized how much can be done in order to change the education for the better. By organizing such remarkable competitions and programs, WGF reminds us that we should put maximum effort to make our future brighter. Moreover, people working in this organization are very responsible and supportive. They do their best in order to achieve their goals. It is my great honor to meet such an amazing team, who is working on a remarkable mission.

WGF is an incredible organization that unites people around a crucial common goal in a way that makes every individual really and truly feel that his/her contribution is invaluable. Such an appreciative and personable attitude is what make WGF particularly stand out for me. The coordinators strive to get to know YOU as an individual, which creates the collaborative atmosphere of trust within the team working on extremely significant initiatives. It is my belief that the combination of the hard work WGF is doing with the really caring attitude it has adoprted will change the world for the better!

An organization who cares about youth – the messengers of our tomorrow. It cares not only about youth as general term, but about every child and young. First I heared about, than I saw it. Respect.
I hope it is readable. I am Romanian, speaking english just occasionally.

I met Heather two years ago in Annapolis for an event organized by UNESCO. She explained what she does and she gave me a her business card for me to contact her. I then researched what WGF does and decided to contact Heather to work with her. I have been a fan of WGF and the programs we organize since then. I love the board members and volunteers. They are so passionate about their work and making the world a better place.

I have met The World Genesis Foundation at a camp, first year I was impressed by them, and the next I joined there effort. They have an impact with young people, by showing them a whole world of posibilities. The dedication and quality of guests they brought in every year, were extraodinary. The students were impressed, and had thier eyes opened to new subjects.

WGF brings a new perspective of the world to our future generations.
