Alina Filipson, a student: “It is better to learn new things from the people who have experience in them. Everyone who has visited the master-class is extremely lucky because Jonathan and Rinata are very experienced! The material is very clear and simple. The speakers have given us a lot of examples from their lives. Our students have learnt how to create a project that will be interesting to the sponsors, how and where to find financial support, volunteers, useful websites… I would like to thank the Department of Social Studies and Humanities for organizing such a wonderful master-class!”
