EZZEV Foundation (EF) is a small network foundation that aims to provide youngsters and parents who feel underprivileged with instruments to better achieve psychosocial integration – that is: a sense of belonging as well as autonomy and a sense of achievement.

Together with its Polish partner Fundacja Citizen Project, Ezzev is a pioneer in creating and implementing constructive confrontational didactics, which are supported by technology (mainly Augmented Reality and video). The aim of these didactics is to encourage young individuals and underprivileged parents to reach moments of clarity. These moments of clarity are to be followed-up by fresh starts that are facilitated by relevant knowledge and improved communication and self-presentation skills.
