Unterstützung von Minderheiten in Rumänien

"Agape - help for self-help" supports the society Al. I. Cuza in a youth integration project with the aim of integrating Roma children into society - Project Buduhala.
The children and adolescents drop out of school and have little chance on the job market without a completed apprenticeship.   "The association has built a workshop where young people have the opportunity to learn traditional trades such as basket weaver or wood carver. To be accepted here, they must prove that they regularly attend state school. As an incentive to attend the vocational school, they are offered a snack, clothing and financial help for the family from the proceeds of the sale of goods produced here. The pupils are instructed in the craft by two village masters, three days a week, three hours in the afternoon".
