LIFE AT QUESTEL
We intend to create a better world for all of us

- Projects must be recurring, so we can add year-over-year value to a charitable cause;
- Project could be located in any countries to help us spread the word around the world;
- Projects for the benefit of children or dedicated to the sustainable development.
While these projects are local in nature, we intend to spread our donations evenly throughout the world. Our goal is to invest in a new, ongoing and persistent project every six months. With this approach, over time, our investments will make a difference.
