The major obstacle initiatives and programs run into is not enough key resources: time and people. We know this because we lived it for decades. That's why we created Edoptics, as a non-profit response to your needs and because infrastructure support can be the key factor in the success of your project. 

We are not your typical consultancy, we are collaborative driven partners who, as a non-profit, can creatively design our work around your specific needs.
