My name is Ioana Ciobanu and and I live in Craiova, Romania. One of my life changing experiences was the encounter I had with Terry Webb. First I "met" her through her book, "The Tree of Renewed Life - The Church and The 12 Steps", which I translated into romanian language. It was through that book that I found out about alcoholism being a disease and about Alcoholics Anonymous. I was avidly reading that book, as I could relate very well. I was an alcoholic myself, just didn't know that alcoholism was a disease and there was a solution.
Later on, Terry, through her Goal project, came to Romania with one man who became my AA sponsor, Floyd F. The encounter with these two awsome people was the springboard into my own recovery process. After begining my recovery process I began an AA group in my home town and an Al-Anon group as well. Now, almost 13 years later, I am a grateful woman, whose life has changed around and whose progress is ongoing. I am still very much involved in AA and Al-Anon, passing on the awsome message of recovery and of God's love and power of changing human "wrecks" into human "beings" - His sons and daughters.
God works through people, and, in my particular case, this organization has reached its GOAL.
Thank you Terry and Floyd. Thanks to all involved in the GOAL Project.
God bless you!

My name is pastor Francis odhiambo,Director upako centre Nairobi.I was trained by GOAL Project on how to reachout to addicted members of our society in 2005 in Nairobi,and after the training,GOAL supported and we now have 5 AA and PLWHA support groups IN Nairobi.

We now do church ministry in a different way after we realised that addicted persons need a unique way of outreach and they find their identity with others in the support groups which is very helpful.

In my context,a slum in Nairobi where alcohol destroys lives of young people who could be resourceful in transforming the situation in the area,the addiction program is currently helping in a big way and we really thank God for the GOAL PROJECT work over the years.
