„From soul for children”
May 12, 2014
1. Improving comprehensive early childhood care and education, especially for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged children from comunity. 2. Ensuring that the real and basic needs of children are met through our action. 3. Increasing awareness of the entire community in this cause because we cannot afford to create a lost generation of children deprived of their chance for an education that might lift them out of poverty.
120 children (7 to 11 years) in difficult circumstances from Goruni village (Iasi county), a socially disadvantaged village, categorized ZEP by UNICEF - education priority area. There is a poor community where the parents of children do not have easy access to jobs and they support their families through their own production in the household. Nevertheless, these children have very good results at school and they even participate in educational contests.
Even the children were very happy, we thought maybe we could do more for them. Sure we can do better and this is just the beginning. It was not just a CSR project, it was a real motivation to do more and more for children. We want to continue to make a difference for children's future.
These children may forget what they received from us, but they will never forget how we made them feel! JCI team felt that special emotion sent by children. When they saw us, their eyes were full of joy. We saw in their faces the satisfaction and their laughter of joy, happiness has echoed around the place. Yes, we are sure that service to humanity is the best work of life.
