The YOU Foundation was created in 2018 with the guiding principle that the best way to achieve one’s own goals, as well as those of the people around him and the collective good, is to centralize the other (YOU) in every endeavor. Our goal is to apply this key altruistic principle to educational and entrepreneurial initiatives, on top of social impact goals. Among these initiatives, YOU Foundation Global Health connects the personal experience of caring for patients in Low-Middle Income Countries (LMIC) to those of social-impact economic development projects, with the goal of uniting various actors around a strategy that benefits all parties involved.
