“The workshop has been great. I’ve learnt a ot the past two days especially to solve conflict, communicating with each other. The thing that makes me tick I wasn”t sure of. I’ve learnt to be grateful for things I took for granted, how to love and respect more and how dignity plays a big role in our life. Puneeta really made an effect and has had to be really patient. We are really thankful and may God bless her.”

“I am a very shy person but I’m good at listening to people and taking their problems with me. I would like to have my own dancing school and change young people’s lives. I like being a good example to everyone around me. I’m 18 years old and I don’t know what to do after this year, but I‘m going to try and go to school and better my life.
The Being Human workshop taught me respect and too many ways of loving myself and everyone around me.”

“First of all respect yourself and then you can learn to respect the other person. It taught me how to never put people down. I leant how to meditate – I didn’t know what meditation was about until we had a session on it.
I loved the conflict session because people were expressing their feelings according to their everyday life, and believe you me, it was very painful to know that some people have bigger problems than us. Knowing who you are is the biggest role a person can ask for.  Much appreciated.”
