The child’s brain needs stimulation to develop, and success in school is largely dependent on early life experiences. Children who grow up in families with no books, a very common situation in poor communities, are already behind at the beginning of first grade, and the risk of dropping out of school is very high.
To reduce the school abandonment rate in Romania, Asociatia OvidiuRO committed to transform every gradinita into a “Kinder-Library” – replete with quality children’s books and daily read-aloud activities to kindle children’s imaginations and instil a desire to learn to read for themselves.
In all its programs, starting from January 2021, OvidiuRO has organized over 300 training sessions for teachers, with an average of 1,200 participants per session, and has provided 600,000 illustrated books, allowing over 265,000 children to listen to stories daily.
