Amber’s mother, Aušra Lazauskienė, says that the parents’ idea of her daughter’s participation in the program was initially surprised and noted that the most important task was to trust – their child, organization and, ultimately, the host family.

I think, first of all, it begins to see the idea, the idea and the means, and not the obstacle. There is such a globalization that I would call a sense of ease. ”
