In the fall of 2013, the municipal government granted FFR a space to start a center for the children of the community. After years of building this bond with the Mayor of the village we are excited to take that relationship even further by providing an After School Program for Roma and Romanian children who are underprivileged and struggling.
The main goals of this project include sharing the love of God with these children, encouraging and helping them in their education, and offering them a chance to succeed in life.
Through support and generous donations, the children are given backpacks and school supplies, along with shoes and clothing if needed. The majority of the class materials are also donated by people from all over the world.
We have many volunteers that come to our After School Program. This gives the children an opportunity to meet people from all over the world, exposing them to new cultures and broadening their worldview. The children are also able to see the importance of the English language which gives them a desire to learn it.
