    I visited briefly one day late in the programme and was incredibly impressed by the maturity and confidence demonstrated by Gaus and Mangesh. The atmosphere in the room was filled with happiness and the joy emanating from all of the participants was tangible. I salute you Maher and the magnificent difference you are making to lives that have experienced unimaginable challenges.
