Summer School – Mogosoaia

A group of volunteers near Bucharest have decided to allocate their time and effort to a noble cause: to support low income families by keeping their children in school and to help these little ones acquire life skills. There are many challenges, such as illiterate children who never attended school, others who started later or abandoned school, and families that can’t afford to keep them in school due to either financial or social struggles.

A community task force of teachers, psychologists, and other professionals is working to establish a summer school where children can improve basic skills (reading, writing, and math) and build their self esteem. With Saint Paraskeva Charity’s support, daily meals, clothing and school supplies will be offered to these children as an incentive to maintain participation.
