Impact story

Aisa is 15 years old and when she started attending Järvaskolan she had an active cannabis addiction. "I had lost faith in a bright future and began to think out strategies to survive a hard life. The staff at Järvaskolan again and again showed how they really believed in me. They reminded me that I am smart, that I mean something. I started attending all my lessons and even went to a math schoold on a Sunday. Today I am copletely clean from drugs since 3 months back and smoke significantly less. In fact, I think there is a chance for me to pass in all subject, in order to enter high school. I take one step at a time.
