ACLAMO Graduate Dreams Again
ACLAMO is a wonderful place. It has been for us a second home where we have received the training, the education and a great deal of help necessary to become better people, capable of confronting life's difficulties. Despite some stumbles, we have always had the capacity to get back up, thanks to the unconditional support of our teachers ....
Thanks to all who made this program possible. It is marvelous, beautiful and strong because it made us learn to dream again - to dream for each of us and for each of our children.
