“Human Rights Defenders School was an excellent opportunity for me since formal education pays attention only to theory. For the first time, I had a chance to meet in person people who actually work on human rights not only in our political system but also abroad. I have reinforced the values I believed in by the appropriate knowledge, and the expert team was always with us. I am very grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this fantastic project.”
