What Tavaana Students Have to Say

These types of instruction, with a professional instructor and excellent reading materials, can change a person's perspective on their civic activities. I learned that we have to do more if we want a free and democratic country that respects civil rights and international law. I also learned that we have to keep learning, and pass our knowledge on to others, in order to lay the groundwork for the changes we seek for our society.
