Training for Teachers in Poor Communities
Asociația OvidiuRo conducted a series of one-day trainings to address the challenges of teaching young children in areas with high poverty rates. OvidiuRo hosted the “Quality Early Education Regional Conferences” between June 19-29 in Bistrita, Dolj, Focsani, Dambovita, Harghita, Hunedoara, Iasi, and Sibiu.

Facilitating communication between agencies and public-private partnerships, promoting the importance of reading and the urgent registration of all poor children in kindergarten, training teachers and securing grants to schools and communities are in focus in 2017.
