The sessions’ topics


Read some thoughts from former participants:

For me, GROW means a lot of things. It means work, experience, friendship, trips, happiness. I will never forget the days that I had to deliver the topics. During the sessions, I was feeling so important for the participants. Those teenagers were sitting on their chairs waiting to learn things from me, waiting to learn things that would help them to find their own way. When I first saw the smiles on their faces, I think, was one of the best times in my life. It’s so important to know that you can help young people to decide what they want to do with their lives. – Zozefina Bosmali, Greece

GROW makes foreigners see not only the beauty of our landscapes, but also the beauty in Romanian people! – Silvia Lobonţ, România


“GROW” is the word which is connected to my life and it is one of the most intense experience I ever had in my life. I discovered myself in multi-dimensions, I became more self-aware, more sociable and optimistic. More importantly, I am more open-minded and I grew myself in that manner where I can see the world differently these days! I really hope that I have created a real impact on the teenagers! I would be really glad to take part in this project one more time if it’s possible and I would be even happier to start this kind of project in my country and increase the impact in numbers where the people with different cultures meet and start learning in a different manner, in the same GROW atmosphere! – Sai Betala, India
