Breaking the cycle of poverty for families in Romania’s rural communities
We are raising funds for a new centre to support hundreds of children and their families living in abject poverty. To prepare children, youth and their families for lifelong learning and better decision making for improved health, well-0being and social integration.
The Child and Family Centre will provide:
- Access to a multidisciplinary team to promote the whole family’s wellbeing
- Support with educational needs for children and young people
- Homework clubs and mentoring
- Access to medical care
- A community laundry
- Educational equipment
- Material support and hygiene materials
- Hot meals for children attending school
Please donate to support our appeal and help FARA continue to build futures and transform lives. Just £20 a month can cover the costs of providing vital support to a child and their family.
Romania also has the highest rate of early school leavers for girls in the EU
