“ Things here at Shpresa get done quickly. In my school we have been asking for a street dancing club for so long and it take ages,

Where as at Shpresa’s Children’s Congress we asked for selfedefence classes and in a very short period of time we have got it running in two of our venues. It is really amazing”

“Sunday is a very good day for my family now, we all come at Mayfield school and do different things, and have so much to talk about and when we go home. Always there is a project and things to do. I am involved in mentoring and has been great fun and learning in the same time. I was awarded the Jack Petchey Award and with the money we organized the “Too buy to get into trouble “ show which was a great success. I felt so proud there. it is amaizing”
