“It has never happened before that I go into something that I don’t know much about and in two days I got knowledge about it. I have learned much in such a great way. I still don’t believe how the ideas start and how it develops to be a great idea in the end. I really loved it, it was just great ❤

“Refugees Forward is such a fascinating experience, that I won’t forget it. It is really powerful and inspirational when you see Dutch students with newcomers hand by hand, sharing their ideas and making professional presentations together.  They are at the same level of education and even though each one came from different countries and cultures, they complement each other as one crew in the same society.
