"I have been coming regularly since Anna started the cross-stitching classes. She loves me and treats me like a daughter, and I love her so much. I am learning a beneficial skill here, so I keep coming. "

"I love football, so I wait for opportunities to receive training. I started from zero. I used to learn alone, so I didn’t know whether I was doing things right or wrong. When I came here, I progressed quickly because I focused on improving. I like that I get to spend more time with my friends from school and church here. We have a lot of fun together. I also like having conversations with Dimitri [one of our staff]. They are helping people see Jesus more and lessen conflicts. In other football places, cigarettes and hookahs are normal. But here, they are not allowed. Cussing is not allowed, either. This makes me feel comfortable. Life is more beautiful here."
