Back to School Appeal 2018
Over the summer we are raising money for our Tackling Poverty Through Education programme, an outreach project across six rural schools in Northern Romania, promoting education as a way out of poverty.
“Children most at risk of school dropout are: from poor families, Roma communities, rural areas and children with disabilities.”
Education and poverty are crucially interrelated; providing an environment where children can learn important skills is a vital step in raising children out of a life of poverty. At present Romania has a high percentage of children living in poverty and dropping out of school, this is not a good combination.
“Early school leaving, low educational attainment and limited connection between skills gained in education and the labour market remain heavy problems in Romania.”
