As 23 youth in Moldova graduated from ourTransitional Care Program at the end of August to pursue a completelyindependent and productive life, CERI received 43 more youth to take theirplaces in the program. These new youth have graduated from the 9thgrade and must now leave the orphanages, as they are aging out of the country’sinstitutional system. If it were not forprograms like ours, they would be completely on their own to support themselvesat just sixteen or seventeen years of age, as without help, continued educationis not an option for them—they must struggle to find housing and a job in orderto meet their basic needs. Thankfully for these 43 youth, they will have theopportunity to continue their education and receive mentoring and life-skillstraining to increase the likelihood that they can find gainful employment inthe future and become productive members of society. These new young adults aspire to becomecarpenters, seamstresses, beauticians, chefs, make-up artists, police officers,and other kinds of professions. CERI wants to see these aspirations realized.Since the Transitional Care Program has become so successful in helping youthtransition into adult life, the sponsors of some of the youth that graduatedout of the program have decided to sponsor new kids just entering the program.With this being said, we are still looking for more sponsors for these brightchildren.
