Goal achieved?

The goal was mostly achieved. However, only 26 young people completed the project.

Successes and challenges

It was a great a success that none of those who committed to the class dropped out. This despite the fact that the circumstances of life were quite challenging for them.

It was a major challenge when the English teacher became sick and the group had to organize together with the pastor a new solution.
