«A wonderful feeling after the project, when it’s something for society, you realize your responsibility, get inner satisfaction from your work, you get self-confidence and the most important thing – there are many new friends! To create something together with the guys, who speak on other language and in non-formal atmosphere, the language barrier disappears, in the team there is cohesion and the guys begin to feel like a team. In such an atmosphere the teenager yearns to learn and in similar projects it is necessary for everyone! » – sad one of participants
«A wonderful project! I was very impressed! Earlier it seemed to me that people who speak on different languages do not understand each other. But this project showed me the opposite. Despite everything, we remained on the same wave, understood and supported each other!»-sad another participeant
