Day 22 – Financial support on education… is a project about providing meaningful and profitable investments in education. Our approach is to facilitate education for everyone. Therefore we coach people in developing their individual concept for life, provide financial support for their educational projects by winning private individuals as educational investors and encourage people to go their own individual way, taking ownership of their future. By investing in educational projects the investors get a threefold return: financial, social and personal.

In 2011 we started to look actively for Austrian individuals and institutions to invest in educational projects and to support our activities. We started a pilot project with the University of Arts Graz to give students the opportunity of financial help and mentoring by their lecturers. Furthermore, we initiated first cooperations with companies and regional associations.

As we believe that there is a high demand on financing educational projects in Austria we want to expand our activities to give everyone the chance to develop their personal concept of life and to take the first steps in realizing it.
In preparation of replicating our activities in Austria we want to focus on Vienna, Styria and Vorarlberg/Tirol in 2012.
