FEEDBACK FROM BENEFICIARIES & PARTNER
“It was so super fantastic! All my muscles are relaxed now from laughing so much. Our stresses are gone – can you imagine that?! We wish you could come back time and time again. The children loved it. They were engaged mind, body and soul. Even though you didn’t use words, they used their imaginations to make the story. It was amazing”
