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, 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.


school tincaOur focus as ‘People-to-People’ Oradea is on practical projects, addressing poverty and its consequences. 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.
