      - Imhoff Waldorf School testimonial

    • Hi guys, I just want to say thank you for showing me things that I didn’t experience in life.

      - Catherine – testimonial from our fundraising workshop

    • “Being in this horse therapy has taught me a lot about me, also I’ve realised where I make mistakes in life, my weaknesses for the fact that the horse stopped. But I’ve learned that I don’t need to give up easily and that sometimes it’s good to rely on and trust people. I have learned […]
