„]It is[ time of distress and bitter decisions. Time of separation, need, disappointments... the first year here is over and we have to ask ourselves, what we have done for a better feeling. We wanted to create home for our youth, a place, where they would be taken seriously, where they would be considered, a place, where they could stay young and they would not be attacked by daily tragic questions. We wanted to give them a nice feeling of home... in the middle of poverty.“
