Meaning of Word/Logo Helpi

Word Helpi (pronounced /helpi/ with “i” as in “inclusive”) is directly inspired by the Esperanto word “helpi”, in order to express universality and inclusiveness of what we are trying to achieve.

Our logo is then trying to express giving and receiving anything there is to give or receive and colors are those of the sky and stars in order to suggest the limits of what we believe we can achieve with our movement.

Our Dream

Sharing Centers becoming a common reality in every town on earth and sharing growing into a natural and everyday aspect of everyone’s life.
