Since then, we have been building the foundations of the group, and planning the future of our projects, we have also been constantly trying to provide exchange programs, however, as small as our group seems now, we have still faced an enormous amount of problems, some of which are inner problems caused by some members -including founders-, and we are sure that we will face a few bumps here and there, still, we will pass these bumps with your help!
