«GURTradio Camp has opened new horizons to me. Here I have met people who are able to move mountains easily. Moreover their businesses don’t just receive the profit; they always bring benefit to the community. I have spent half of the event in tears. There the moments when I really cried. Not because I have got upset, quite the opposite – I have been extremely happy because there are so many people who really care. People who are proud of what they do, people who do everything to make the phrase «I’m from a village!» sound proudly. I am happy to get acquainted with everybody and grateful to everyone who have taken part», – shared her impressions volunteer of GURT Resource Centre Oksana Hutsol.
