Education is the key to a child’s future. Unlocking the potential in a child opens doors and opportunities.
Firm Foundations Romania runs a Kids Club Program for children ages 3-6 and an After School Program for students between 1st and 8th grade. Currently over 140 students are enrolled in FFR’s educational programs.
Why are the Roma children in Romania struggling to receive an education?
60% of Roma families live in poverty.
Imagine not having electricity or running water. Imagine living in a one room house with your parents and five siblings. Imagine not having any hope
80% of Roma adults are illiterate.
Without anyone at home to help with homework, children fall behind in their school studies at a young age and have a hard time ever catching up.
70% drop out of school before 5th grade.
Little to no support or encouragement is provided for children to stay in school. Their parents do not see the importance of an education.
How is FFR helping to empower these children to succeed?
Simple life skills are being taught to help the children have a successful future.
Teeth brushing, hand washing, and manners are all things that FFR are teaching the children during the Educational Program. Basic life skills that they are not learning at home.
FFR believes every child deserves an education. Our After School Program provides a safe and loving environment for the children.
While we help the children with their homework, we also teach life skills like hygiene lessons and manners. The children are encouraged to continue their studies because we know they can succeed.
"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord. Plans to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11
The children in our educational programs learn who God is and how much He loves them. God has a plan for each child and this is what we teach the children. Their futures are in His hands!
