We continued our activities of creativity development of talented youth from rural areas. We held 8 creative workshops for 66 children. The topics addressed in these workshops consisted in developing divergent thinking skills, introducing creativity techniques, identifying alternative solutions to given problems and tests for measuring creativity. Creativity is a theme that arouses interest among children. The proposed activities and games were received with great enthusiasm. Also, there is an opening for non-formal educational activities among children, which stimulate their thinking and creativity.
We also continued our activities to stimulate teachers' creative potential and their ability to learn new ways for this potential to be used in solving the difficulties that impend children from attending schools or achieving school performance. We held 5 workshops for 33 teachers in Dagata and Hoceni village. The main topics addressed are the identification of the problems that the teachers face in the classroom, the structure of the education system, the resources that come to the help of the teachers or which should come and the identification of the solutions to the mentioned problems.
Moreover we celebrated Christmas by offering gifts to 120 children.
We continued working on developing the creativity potential of talented children in the rural area. We held 14 creativity workshops for more than 90 children from Dagata, Hoceni and Grajduri villages. The topics covered during the workshops were: introduction in the subject of creativity, developing the capacity of divergent thinking, introduction of some creativity techniques, identifying alternative solutions for given problems, etc.

We continued the activities to stimulate teachers' creative potential and to learn methods in which this potential can be utilized in solving the problems that impede school attendance or students' performance. We organized 3 workshops with teachers, after which 8 practice applications were implemented in the schools were they exercise their profession. The practice applications contributed in solving school performances' problems and losing motivation of the children for school.

Moreover, we extended the creativity workshops to the teachers of the children involved in the project. The program aims to stimulate the creative potential of teachers and learning ways in which this potential can be used in solving creatively the many problems that keep pupils in the rural areas from going to school or having excellent results. We held workshops with teachers from Hoceni commune, Vaslui County, Romania.
The beginning of the school year allowed us to restart creativity workshops in the three communities where we implement our project. The children were excited to see us again and to be challenged to explore the depths of their imagination in order to bring to surface their brightest ideas. Since the summer vacation was long, our first meetings focused on bringing back the creative attitude for the children. This was done through a series of games and tasks children were proposed to solve. This way, we focused on the part of the creative process where one is asked to generate as many solutions as possible, no matter how realistic or usable they are. The end of the workshops focused, then, on bringing the large number of ides to several that were considered the most probable to solve the situations children was presented.
In total there have been organized more than 10 such workshops in rural communities where children have little or no access to informal education activities. In most cases, for these children, their most and only challenging environment is the school. Once they finish classes, each day, their parents can do little to encourage their curiosity and need for a stimulating surrounding. Considering all this, the level of enthusiasm in these groups is extremely high for people outside of their regular, day-to-day encounters, to come and present them activities, information and challenges that are fun, at the same time.
As the winter presents even less opportunities for children to have space to play, because of the cold and the bad weather, we intend to continue bolstering their creative abilities so that they can make the best of their limited resources in order to spend quality time in their homes but also outdoor.
