School project in Chiselet, Romania
Each day, over 100 Roma children in Chiselet receive help with their homework, transportation to and from school and a warm meal. It is often the only meal they will have each day. For the youngest children, there is pre-school where they begin to learn everything. Fine motor skills, the alphabet, how to count and how to behave at school. The youth receive guidance and help in regards to their studies and further education.
2 years ago, we found Georgiana and her 3 siblings sleeping with the pigs to keep warm during the cold winter months. Our project leader in Chiselet quickly began to invest time in this family. The father was an alcoholic and the mother had serious mental challenges. For the most part of the time, no one knew where the parents were and the children were left alone to take care of themselves. The oldest brother worked on a farm and his earnings put food in the stomachs of his siblings.
All the children are now part of our school project in Chiselet. They receive help with their school work, transportation to and from school and a warm meal every day. Most importantly, they receive love and care.
