About us

Openous NGO aims to build communities of psychological resilient children and youth through innovative educational programs.

Our name derives from the English word “Open” and from the ancient Greek word “nous”, which means mind – intellect, which is a set of mental abilities that include consciousness, perception, thought, judgment and memory. The mind has the power of imagination, recognition, appreciation and is responsible for processing emotions and feelings, resulting in behaviors and actions.

At Openous we empower children, youth and their milieu psychologically and emotionally and we help societies to understand and adapt psychological resilience as a socially innovative key to education.

Since November 2019 in collaboration with local communities, organizations and agencies, we help children and young people to develop those skills that will empower them psychologically and strengthen their resilience.

We believe that respect and self-respect are emotions full of power. They are a key factor in human education, and we must both inspire and cultivate them.

EDUCATION

Education is life itself, and as a basic human right it applies to all people and especially to children, so that they have a better quality of life in the future. At Openous education is our basic tool to achieve our goal.

TRUST

Trust is the cornerstone in developing positive relationships and interactions between individuals and groups with special abilities and virtues where you can build on them. Our experience, our sense of responsibility and consistency are the three elements that build trust between our organization and the target groups of our programs as well as our partners.
