After School Program
In Romania, one in eight children, from rural areas specifically, goes to bed hungry, and one in four drops out of school due to poverty.
This program started in response to these needs and aims to help 6 to 14 year old children, from disadvantaged families, to have a better chance to succeed in life. We feed the children a hot meal, help them with their homework, organize activities to develop independent life skills (hygiene and cleanliness, working in a group, timekeeping, respecting authority, etc.). We also plan recreational, leisure, social and educational activities, as well as spiritual support and religious education.
We plan annual camps, field trips, home visits, etc. with the purpose to create an environment where all children feel valued and encouraged.
