As 23 youth in Moldova graduated from our Transitional Care Program at the end of August to pursue a completely independent and productive life, CERI received 43 more youth to take their places in the program. These new youth have graduated from the 9th grade and must now leave the orphanages, as they are aging out of the country’s institutional system. If it were not for programs like ours, they would be completely on their own to support themselves at just sixteen or seventeen years of age, as without help, continued education is not an option for them—they must struggle to find housing and a job in order to meet their basic needs. Thankfully for these 43 youth, they will have the opportunity to continue their education and receive mentoring and life-skills training to increase the likelihood that they can find gainful employment in the future and become productive members of society. These new young adults aspire to become carpenters, 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 youth transition into adult life, the sponsors of some of the youth that graduated out 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 bright children.
Please contact Dianna Jonns at email@example.com for more information about sponsoring a child in CERI’s Transitional Care Program.
