Latest news - Education

The development of life, social and emotional skills is a priority in the afterschool programs held at the Private School in Tinca with financial funding granted by the Princess Margarita of Romania Foundation. With their support, around 100 children daily receive help in doing their homework as well as learning other skills. The nutrition program is extremely important and vital for children from the Roma community. A balanced, appropriate and diversified diet helps children focus more in lessons and makes them healthier, happier, and more confident.

 

Our colleague Simona Tarau is working closely with parents in order to involve them in the educational process of their children. Parents come to organized groups once a week to discover that even though they haven't been to school themselves they can still support their children in doing so. 

Children love it! Parents understand what is happening in school and that there are things they can do to help. Guess what? Children can't wait to teach their parents - shapes, colors, letters, numbers, etc...Some parents became more interested in schooling and want to learn more! There is so much joy and love!

kids learningThe school is accredited by the State and runs the National curriculum. The main aim is for the children to graduate the Primary School at the age of 11-12 feeling confident and comfortable enough to progress to the local Secondary School in the village. The first generation of children have actually just moved on from our school and 18 out of the 22 are regularly attending Secondary School, ...so that in itself is a measure of achievement of the project.

Photos speak for themselves - happy children who love being at school.

The school is now operating so successfully that from September 2015 the capacity is being raised to 200 when new classrooms were opened. In addition, a new project called Second-Chance has started for older children who missed out earlier. 

As the 'Dream' continues, we pray you will continue to be a part of this 'Miracle in Progress' - Please, help today with a donation towards operating costs or sponsoring a child to attend school.

 

School in Tinca Children from a community with no running water or sanitation in their homes and with parents largely unable to work, means the poverty levels are horrific. ProRroma School offers more than a basic education. Each child has shower facilities at school, breakfast and lunch is provided each day and classes provide a well-balanced education in both Cultural and Modern subjects. The 7 teachers and some additional staff provide a great team to meet the needs of our 200 children through these important years of life.

The school built and operated with a Christian ethos, will also provide a basic level of ministry for sharing the Gospel message of a loving Saviour and counselling for the many needs within this community.

 

roma kidsThe Gypsy community is one of Tinca's oldest and largest ethnic minorities. They have lived in the country for hundreds of years, but are not integrated also because of widespread discrimination and stigma. The primary cause would be the lack of access to pre-school education and failure to keep up in primary school with the children of their age.

Romanian educational system deals with (or fails to deal with) the integration of Roma children in public education. People-to-People Foundation set about changing their options in Tinca

We know that better levels of education could offer poor children a future full of hope and that education is a key factor in breaking the circle of deprivation that many of these poor children and their families face.

People to People started to assist the Roma in facing the challenges of our century by providing teaching methods and a curriculum in such a way that school becomes interesting for Roma children and also that majority other pupils and teachers in school become more familiar with Roma culture and history.
