I learned many things thanks to this experience, and everyday I remember something related to that period… I’ve come back home full of feelings and good experiences that I’m trying to bring with me during my jobs too. I’ve learned that almost nothing is impossible, but if you want to achieve good results you have to work hard and constantly…” – Giorgio Gotra, LOT intern – Italy
A beneficial opportunity to contribute and assist a fabulous organization – through giving and volunteering I also received many gifts including friendships and skills.” – Jessica Brown, LOT intern – Sydney, Australia
I had an incredible time working at LoT, and the lessons I learned and the friends I made are ones that I will keep for the rest of my life. I think LoT is unique in that is helping foster a culture of civic engagement and voluntarism in a region where that is not always a priority. It is really unusual to find an NGO that understands how vibrant and motivated the youth of the region are and provides them with an opportunity to use their skills and energy to do something for their society.” – Zayn Siddique, LOT Intern – Jordan
