After School Project

Please take a moment to view this incredible video that shows the impact our After School program has in the gypsy community of Lazareni.

Project Overview
To provide an after school program to help educate Roma Gypsy children between the age’s of 7 – 14 years old, giving them the opportunity to access extra support to help them meet their state school targets and educational requirements. The aim for this project is to provide 60 children with the opportunity to access 3 x 2 hour programs each week that will cover 9 different subjects, in alignment with their state education curriculum. Whilst the children attend these extra classes a meal will also be provided for them. The children whom this project is targeted towards come from a Roma Gypsy village in Lazareni. The project would run for 8 out of 12 months and look to give extra tutorials and incentives to each child, supporting each one of them to achieve their full potential in their education. The overall aim is to educate 60 children with 6 hours of extra tuition per week, 8 months of the year, providing them with 3 healthy meals per week.
