Testimonials

  • The whole GROW experience was unforgettable from start to finish. Not only have I learnt more about others, but I have also managed to understand myself and improve skills in the fields of communication, time management, teamwork or choice matters. I gained the confidence of taking action when I have to and to speak my mind up more easily. Most of all, I understood how powerful the desire and will of making something happen are, thus giving me the motivation of always getting involved in such activities.

    GROW participant from Calarasi
  • GROW was really amazing. I had the occasion to learn things that will help me a lot in the future. When I think about the sessions, the people I met there and the trainers, I get tears in my eyes because they changed my life and my perception in a good way. I have a lot of nice memories and I'm very proud because now I'm a part of GROW family. I'm really thankful for every single person who made my experience to be the best thing that happened to me. Thank you for everything!  ”

    GROW participant from Alba-Iulia
  • The greatest challenge was to open up in front of everybody else, to communicate with them. I went through a lot of different feelings: fear, insecurity, but they soon turned into trust, happiness and pride for participating in the GROW project. I learned to save money, to invest in the things with the greatest value, how to think of everybody else and not just me, to collaborate. I think GROW is different because it puts you through different situations you have to handle and because it connects people. For me, it's the experience I would repeat endlessly.
    Eliana Cristina
    GROW participant from Pitesti
  • I'm SO GLAD I attended GROW because it helped me realise that we are all the same, no matter the culture, religion or whatever, and that, even when there are differences, we can achieve goals as great as changing young people's perception. For me GROW was such a nice experience: I met new friends, I improved my self-confidence and I really loved getting involved in the community through the challenges we created.

    GROW participant from Bucharest
  • I practiced and developed my teamwork skills, I learned how to be more tolerant and understanding with people's opinions and I went a step further by creating new friends and trying to overcome my fear of speaking my mind. I met a lot of genuinely kind, cool people, especially the trainers, and I hope to be a part of the GROW team again anytime soon.
