By working upstream and mobilizing networks of graduates and business associates around the students, What if Community wishes to encourage the creation of links between younger and older generations. The goal is to provide an opportunity for contributors to follow the students they have supported and for students to benefit from the experiences of their elders.
3- SHARE: What if Community encourages students and their communities to share their experiences and testify to their communities.

We have the ambition to :
- Become a main actor in financing education and to raise awareness on the financing issues for students
- Promote intergenerational transmission and experience sharing and to offer the first space for exchanges between students and professionals
- Become a lever to promote access to bank loans to students from modest backgrounds with attractive interest rates
- Support students’ entry into the professional lives through innovative partnerships with companies
