ONCE OPON A TIME…

With an idea to establish a charity organisation came up Kārlis Andersons who together with Jurģis Sedlenieks was candidating in the Student Association elections. One of their promises was to support local people in need, therefore popularising SSE Riga as a socially responsible establishment. Although they weren’t elected, the idea got a significant support from surroundings and in 2002 the Charity Club was founded.
