A NEW BEGINNING

When school starts, the joy and happiness of seeing old friends and teachers means everything for our children, but for the parents facing financial difficulties, this moment it’s a real challenge to provide school supplies.

The second edition of our campaign “I want to go to school too!” took place between August 25th and September 30th 2015. With help from individual donors, Papetaria Tudor SRL, Damen Galati Shipyard, Alewijnse Marine SA, Macon Association Galati, Galati and Pechea Town Hall we managed to give school supplies to 80 children from Galati and Vrancea County.

“We are very happy that 10 fully equipped backpacks reached the children in need and that we put a smile on their face. “I want to go to school too!” campaign made happy a lot of children. We are thrilled that we had a contribution to that.” Ionut Turdean, CEO Tudor Stationery, Bistrita.

Beside the material support, children received also the confidence that they can continue their school path and follow their dreams.

“I know that only education can help me achieve my goal, help my family and to help others to fulfill their dreams too. My role model is my mother, because she never gives up until she accomplishes what she wants.” Naomi, 12 years old.

Only in the scholar year 2014-2015, due to the collaboration between donors, volunteers, sponsors and authorities, more than 200 children that were in our programs for preventing school dropout, had the chance to continue their studies. 60 of them received scholarships for excellent school results. 75% were from rural areas, from 25 places in Galati County (Sendreni, Piscu, Tudor Vladimirescu, Liesti, Slobozia-Conachi, Pechea, Costache Negri, Grivita, Tepu, Buciumeni, Cavadinesti, Vanatori, Odaia Manolache, Namoloasa and many others) and Vaslui County (Buda). 10% from the children from rural areas obtained a 10 GPA.

Of the 200 children that received support last year, not a single one left school. But, unfortunately, based on Eurostat data, the dropout risk passed last year in Romania 18%.

Together we can influence statistics and change in good our children’s future. Find out how simple you can do it here.
