The school was grateful for our support and asked us to prepare an activity day for their students,’ says Marko.

The FLEX alumni led drawing and colouring sessions, sports events and interactive games. Both the participants and organizers really enjoyed the experience and are planning to stay in touch.

‘We have mutually decided to organize similar projects again soon. It was very motivating for everyone,’ notes the FLEX alumnus.
