by Children's Helpers Worldwide Vetted since 2015 Top Ranked


Children's Helpers Worldwide is aiming to sponsor this project, which will allow 19 children, living in poverty in the village of Tarlungeni, Romania, to have educational support and other assistance, through a tutoring and mentoring programme, run by local organisation, Refugiu. Tutoring sessions take place each weekday. Other assistance, such as enrolling the children in school and ensuring they have medical check-ups, is given when needed. 14 of the children have a parent who has passed away.

The World Bank states that in Eastern Europe, at least 71% of Roma households live in deep poverty. The chance of graduating secondary school is 29% at highest. Unemployment is a major problem. Romania has one of the world's largest Roma populations. In the village of Tarlungeni, most of the Roma community lives in poverty and suffers from social exclusion. This project supports 19 children with their education, and with other social issues, to give them more opportunities for the future.


Children's Helpers Worldwide is working in partnership with the local organisation, Refugiu. Refgiu holds tutoring sessions for children every weekday and offers other social assistance when necessary, such as helping parents to enrol their children in school and ensuring the children have media check-ups, and that the teenagers have registered for their identity documents.

Long-Term Impact

The project will help the children to stay in school, and will assist their families with other social needs, so the children will grow up to be healthier and will have a better level of education. This will give them more employment prospects as adults. This project will have an ongoing effect through the generations. These children will be literate, unlike some of their parents, and they will then be able to support their own children with their school work one day.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
