“We work around the world to protect cultural heritage, build links between communities, raise awareness of pressing risks, and transmit traditional knowledge to future generations.” Sophie Beer, co-founder
Our projects are tools to promote a model of society that is based on respect for cultural diversity, biodiversity and local traditions; is in harmony with the environment; offers gratification both in quality of life and work; and aims to transmit this heritage to future generations.
It is a principle of Real Lives that funding be used exclusively for projects and the communities they serve. Therefore, the Association maintains a permanent team comprised of only the two co-Founders, Sophie Beer and Mark Abouzeid. They are supported by a network of partners, collaborators, volunteers, interns and members.
