Departure into the future

We want to continue our close learning support and promotion of the individual educational paths of the children and open up more educational opportunities for gifted young people from the villages. To this end, we are building a student residence in the centre of the district town of Sibiu, around thirty kilometres from Hosman, near many schools and training centres. There we will look after pupils up to the age of 18 in residential groups with educators and rent residential units to students. A total of 35 places will be created in four shared flats.

In the remote villages where the Roma families live, there are no further training opportunities after eight years of compulsory schooling. These can only be found in Sibiu. The young people and their families are overburdened with travel and accommodation costs. Some have already had to drop out of education.
