The After School Program offers children a safe, Christ-centered learning environment.
Each day, every child is given a hot meal in a Christian atmosphere where they are loved, encouraged, and challenged to be all that God created them to be.
The dropout rate is very high in villages, so we intentionally engage each child in a learning strategy that works best for them. And our overall purpose is that they will know Christ and make Him known throughout their lives. Making Disciples that Make Disciples!
The After School Program is divided into three levels:
Education and tutoring
Extracurricular education in the arts, technology, and sports
Field trips and learning excursions
Exposure to city life and careers
School supplies, garden seeds, clothes, shoes, etc.
Parental education and involvement
Supplemental food packages
We are asking all teachers to help support our teachers in Romania:
Praying 4 Teachers
Our goal is to provide the support students need to stay in school (tutoring) and provide them with one hot meal, Bible, English, Music, and Sports classes. We also have a preschool class during this time. All funds go to help all children so no one is left out.
Partner with us
Running our program takes three teachers, three volunteers, one cook/cleaning, a Maintenance person, a school psychologist/ counselor, a Social worker, and much paperwork from Romania.
All donations go into Operation Education. NO CHILD IS EVER TURNED AWAY. Please pray for the children, the teachers, and the funding needed, and please partner with us so that our program will have all the required financing and we can continue to reach and teach these children and families.
Many village children cannot afford the needed supplies for school. Each year, we give hundreds of school supplies, book bags, umbrellas, shoes, and boots so that the children can be equipped to learn.
We also pay transportation costs for high school students to continue their education.
Transportation costs and supplies are expensive and difficult for many families to purchase, so many children are forced to abandon school. For a small amount, you can give a child the opportunity to have a brighter future.
