Educational and occupational therapy project "ANDIANA"

Objectives
► Preventing institutionalization and creating efficient services for the rehabilitation and social integration of children
► Creating informative materials and training opportunities for the specialists in the medical and social fields
► Lobbying locally and promoting advocacy at the national level in matters concerning children with disabilities

Partners
In 2003, Heart of a Child Foundation in collaboration with SERA Romania, Cudalbi County Hall and Galati School Inspection launched the “Andiana” kindergarten. 

Beneficiaries 
The service was created to ensure the right to education and social integration for over 20 children with disabilities who have been placed in foster families in Cudalbi County through Heart of a Child programs. It also assisted other children with disabilities who live with their natural families. 

Results
Until 2011 this service was the only one of this type that was accessible to rural families in Galati County.
The project helped to integrate children with disabilities into the local community, and it was a great step toward changing the community’s mentality concerning children with disabilities.

At present, Galati School Inspection and the Emil Garleanu Special School ensure the daily educational program for children who attend classes in special schools, and Heart of a Child ensures daily activities of socializing and occupational therapy.
