ADRA Romania supports education!
The ADRA project "I want to go to school!" wants to support good, hardworking children, appreciated by the local authorities and with good results at school, even though they come from vulnerable families and are constantly threatened by dropping out of school.
The project initiated by ADRA Romania, "I want to go to school!", aims to combat early school departures, trying to help overcome two difficult thresholds that these children face: entering high school and entering high school. ADRA beneficiaries are identified through partnerships with local town halls and through the close collaboration of local ADRA volunteers with school principals in the area.
