|During the lecture|
In November 2010 Wave Projects organized the lecture “Breaking the cycle of discrimination” that was held by Mihaela Kovacs, social worker from Romania. All the participants loved the guest lecturer and they were challenged to learn from Romanian example and Mihaela’s experiences. Since Mihaela left Tuzla Wave participants are asking when will she come back to teach another lesson!
Part of the open program was also presentation “What I can do for Africa” by rev. Richard Brunton from the UK. The presentation gave a great insight into African culture and problems that they are facing today. As a result of that presentation we are happy to see that some of our participants decided to support the project of collecting humanitarian aid for DR Congo.

|Lecture on Personal Stability|
We were amazed by great response to the lecture in psychology “In search of personal stability” that was held as part of Wave Open program in Subotica, Serbia. It was great to see a large number of guests that attended the lecture. Several listeners who heard this lecture in Croatia several months ago said that it was ten times better this time! Participants had many questions and wanted to speak more about the topic after the lecture.
|The biggest Wave course until now!|
In October 2010 Wave Projects organized the two weeks English Course in Subotica, Serbia. We were especially surprised when we heard local radio station releasing information about Wave English Course on news! For a long time we did not know who released the news on the radio since we’re advertising only through posters. Later on we found out that one person who applied to the Course decided to share that information with the public.
|Time after class|
From the very start when we organized the course we felt that everything about this course was a miracle! Besides the biggest number of participants and team members, we also had the best facilities until now – but even that was a limiting factor. We had program through all day and sometimes we had to have 3 groups at the same time due to the biggest number of participants: the largest group was meeting in a wonderful chapel, the second one in the top story where we normally have snacks for participants and the third one was meeting in the basement (in a room used for child care during the church services). In every way it was the biggest Wave Course so far and it was a miracle from the start!
|Wave Follow up in Subotica|
Encouraged by wonderful experience during the course, our team from Subotica decided to continue with the classes throughout the whole year! Now they are organizing English lessons for all the levels every week.

One of the trips /Follow up in Bosnia
This year Wave Projects started with something new: Wave Follow up program. We decided to start with Follow up program when we realized that after every Wave Course participants ask us to organize longer programs and always complaining that time with us is too short. From the beginning of this year Wave is not taking place only for two weeks per year, but throughout the whole year with English lessons, guest lecturers, trips and socializing evenings in Wave Centre.
