Who Are We
I CAN TOO’s mission is to raise awareness for the impact of climate change on children’s health, and the urgency to address it. Our goal is to inform the society and give solutions which counteract and slow-down climate change.
History and Results
I CAN TOO was established in 2006 as a private initiative by Nelly Radeva, a true believer that everything is possible. In 2012 the organization was set up in the USA as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization.
The main idea of I CAN TOO is that everyone can join to support and contribute by whatever they CAN do best. Following this principle the organization established two therapeutic Centers in Bulgaria entirely by in-kind donations – one for children with special needs and one for children with autism.
Over 400 international celebrities are ambassadors of I CAN TOO and have been spreading awareness of its mission worldwide.
Raising awareness for the connection between environmental change and children’s health.
I CAN TOO is helping children with special needs, their families and existing therapeutic centers.
