“I came to the ELIJAH community because it’s difficult at home. I didn’t go to school because I helped my mother every day. She couldn’t do everything alone. I help her with cleaning and with my brothers. We are 11 siblings at home. My father is a shepherd. He only comes home when there are holidays. Here at ELIJAH I go to school. I’m in 5th grade now. After school I go to the social center in Sokeres. In the future I would like to go to Casa Francisc student residence in Sibiu and attend high school. I want to be a kindergarten teacher,” says Paula from the village Hosman.
