Help Build a Community Center in Romania

The Big Picture

Goal: $400,000
  $210,000 raised
In the mountains of Romania, there is an enclave of villages with a staggering 80% unemployment rate. The average child drops out of school in the 5th grade to help his family forage for food. They live in shanties with no running water. They are Roma, often called gypsies, and they are also the victims of harsh discrimination.

A group of volunteers is building a community center there to give children a place to stay warm in the winter, eat a hot meal, learn from tutors. This will help them stay in school, get an education and eventually get a good job to break their cycle of poverty.

Impact of Your Donation

Funding is needed for doors, stairs, windows, plaster, and paint to finish the exterior of the building, as well as supplies and materials for a finished interior.
