First, I participated on summer camp in Children’s Village Pestalozzi, in Trogen/Switzerland. There we learned lot of things about everything. 6 workshops: Learning Democracy, Migrations, Conflicts, Child Rights, also 1 hour a day about Sex education. Such an amazing experience.

Then I helped on some projects in CED, like Beans Day etc..
