What Tavaana Students Have to Say

As an Iranian citizen, I might never have even thought about civic institutions if it wasn't for this course. As of now, there is no group in Iran doing this kind of work for us. I give my utmost thanks to you and all of the Tavaana staff.  I hope you offer a greater variety of courses, because our people desperately need it.
