Tom Levine supports the ScoutingTrain because...
...he was duely impressed by the dimension of Milenas, Bennys und Misches aspiration. They aim for intensive dialogue in times of ill-advised indifference and hostility. Wow!
"At our national jamboree last year, Milena, Mische and Benny introduced me to their ScoutingTrain project. I was duly impressed by their enthusiasm, their courage to tackle such a big project, and with the dimension of their aspiration.
They aim for intensive dialogue in times of ill-advised indifference and hostility. Wow!
Professionally, I have often to do with Eastern Europe and Russia, and I know how difficult it is to defend sober interaction against political prejudices, here as well as there.
And this has never been more true than in the light of the Crimean crisis. Which makes ScoutingTrain so terribly indispensable, so ever more important.
The team of ScoutingTrain does not take the easy road. Thus, I have decided to be a lot more generous with a donation than usually and to do so exceptionally open.
I very much hope that I can inspire others to follow my example. I am looking forward to the hearing the stories you will bring back from ScoutingTrain."
