The People Behind Edut 710

Meet the Team Behind the Scenes

The dedicated volunteers of “Edut 710” hail from diverse geographical, professional, and emotional backgrounds. United by a common purpose, these professionals work tirelessly and selflessly, expecting nothing in return. The process of capturing a testimony is intricate, beginning with an initial conversation and culminating in a recorded interview. Our role is to listen. The hundreds of testimonies available on our website have been meticulously edited, proofed, and registered by numerous volunteers, each contributing to the preservation of these important stories.
