Wings to Learn- Empowering Children

Wings to Learn- Empowering Children, based in Switzerland and Denmark, emerged out of a pursuit to inspire and support eager minds, and a desire for actions to speak louder than words. They are an organization driven by progressive ideas, bold actions, and a strong foundation of support.

Founded by Dr. Luis De La Calle, Wings To Learn- Empowering Children was established to go above and beyond to provide their learners with an empowering environment, offering them the opportunity to create and mold their own unique experiences through the organization’s wide range of activities where they can fully embrace their identity and gain all the skills they need to be leaders tomorrow.

Wings to Learn Academy

Wings to Learn Academy, based in Estonia and Spain,  was created to help people learn more about making a difference.

Wings to Learn Academy believes that every individual has rights that are inherent to all human beings i.e., human rights. Everyone is entitled to these rights, without discrimination.  To truly achieve access to and protection through human rights education, we need to address both material and spiritual development.

At Wings To Learn Academy, it is essential to understand that to be human means more than survival on a material level. The essence of humanity is in the connection that we share with all beings on the spiritual level. Through their holistic approach to growth and experiential learning, they empower individuals and inspire them to embrace their true identity while unleashing their inner potential.
