Testimonials

"Where Do I Belong?" Youth Exchange - Romania was an experience I wish everyone could have. The project focused on many topics that we deal with on a daily basis such as migration, refugees, inequality, barriers of different kinds that we both face and place for others to overcome. All activities were interactive and challenged the participants to come up with creative ideas, solutions or performances in a short period of time. The activities were made in a way to interact with people from different nationalities, religions & backgrounds and to question all our beliefs and cultural norms. 

Everything we did was inspiring and entertaining, a way to learn by doing and a way to learn from the others. I enjoyed every single moment and strongly recommend participating to anyone who enjoys international environment and learning in unconventional ways. 

Thank you all for being who you are, sharing your thoughts and ways of doing and special thanks to the organizers who outdid themselves! :)
