“Without the pre-school the romany children often struggle settling into mainstream school. Not only do they have less knowledge than the other village children, but they have had no experience of the social situations that school presents and this causes problems for the children and the teachers.”
Having worked in the community of Urvind and setting up an extremely successful pre-school programme and after school club, Teams4U are looking to build a classroom and support the extension of the programme in the community of Alparea. Due to prejudice, poverty, discrimination and mistrust, the Romany communities of rural Romania are mostly illiterate, often live in squalor and struggle to provide for their families. Our pre-school programme was set up to provide practical support for children, to teach them how to read, count, and the learning expected of a pre-school pupil, but also encourages them to integrate with children from other communities.
Education is the surest way out of poverty. It is also the only way to prevent child labour and the exploitation of children.
The impact of this programme is undeniable! In Urvind, we have seen a radical transformation from a community that barely had any children attend state-funded government schools to nearly every child, through the support of our before and after school programmes, graduating high school.
