Education News

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.

We work at the heart of communities to develop projects that enable long-term change for children and their families. Real change needs an investment in the infrastructure, both physical and social, to help give children the opportunity to achieve their full potential - so that families and communities can cope with the pressure of their daily lives - and live free from the consequences of poverty.

From small beginnings, with only a small class of 25 gypsy children, our ProRroma Kindergarten & Primary School has developed to reach out to nearly 200 children within the community.

roma childPoverty can be – and often is – defined in purely monetary terms. At ‘People-to-People' Oradea we know that poverty is far more complicated. Poverty encompasses the whole range of environmental, economic, social and cultural pressures on children and families that reduce their chances for survival, growth and development.  

Inevitably poor children are denied a voice! Excluded from mainstream society, they, their families and communities come under great pressure. The poor suffer from bad health, low levels of education, inadequate nutrition and housing, and low standards of social welfare.
