Creating a generation of helpers

Get Started

We're on a mission

To create a generation of helpers by empowering today's youth to help others.

Our story

Born from a conversation in Amsterdam, Helpen (Dutch for ‘help out’) was built to form foundations of generosity and empathy in the next generation.

Driverless cars. Gene editing. Trips to Mars. It all has great promise. But explain to us why, with all of this technology, we are not focusing on the handful of years that shape us into the adults we eventually become. Why our focus is on filters and not empathy. On ‘likes’ and not kindness.

The next 15 years have the potential to be the most impactful in human history. Many of today’s children will be making decisions that will affect us all.  We believe it is time to use technology for humanity. It’s time to improve. Enhance. Upgrade.

This is our chance to shape the stories of our families and our communities. Use Helpen to instill the values today that will show up in their leadership tomorrow.

One dinner at a time.
