Testimonials

"Where do I belong?" Youth Exchange - Romania was one of the most beautiful and succesful experiences I have had so far. I feel truly grateful for each and every person, story and moment we shared. The knowledge gained, the learning outcomes and engagement of participants was inspiring. The quality of each national team stood out throughout the entire project as the group dynamic grew with each day. WDIB was yet another amazing chance to work close to OTI representatives, to absorb their know-how and to gain new skills, as the involvment of each participant was taken care of, offering a feeling of empowerment and involvement. On a logistical level, the organising was spot on and each impediment was solved in a natural way, as part of the learning process. The chemistry we, as facilitators, felt was impressive and it gave us even more reasons to feel like it is worth it to keep going and to make the change we wish to make. After participating in many Eramus + projects, I can truly say this was one of the very best. This gives me hope and excitement for what is yet to come. Where do I belong? Where people as beautiful as those on this project are :) Thank you, OTI!!!
