Testimony of Hadeel from Desert Bloom:
We are grateful to the Erasmus+ program for enabling cross-Mediterranean cooperation among NGOs. The training allowed us to exchange experiences and practices, preparing our youth for real-life challenges. We practiced language skills, learned to initiate ideas, and embraced diverse cultures. We appreciate the Polish educational system, the warm hospitality of local authorities, professors, students, and the mayor. All visits were well-organized and breathtaking. The training had a positive impact, fostering cooperation, communication, and goal achievement. Erasmus+ empowered us to gain experience, share knowledge, and contribute to our local societies. We extend our gratitude to everyone who made us feel at home. We look forward to more projects for a better future.
