1500 children learn to take care of themselves and our planet during summer School Preparation programs
The children embark on a 13-day trip and learn about their body, discover the benefits of healthy food and the importance of playing sports. They recap numbers and letters through writing exercises and applications play games and explore the surroundings in order to get ready for success in school. During this journey, the teachers serve as guides and the workbook “Good morning, children!” becomes the children’s best companion. Kids are encouraged to ask questions and find answers, to explore and discover, to be creative and act as team players.
With support from GlaxoSmithKline, OvidiuRo (The Alex Fund’s sister organization) organizes 90 summer School Preparation programs in 14 counties for 1500 children aged 3-14. Over 1000 of them are preschoolers. The focus of the summer programs is Health.
