Giving a good start to the youngest in kindergartens, day nursery or schools

Many children in Moldova live under great psychological strain: in many cases their parents do not have a job and are therefore not able to adequately support their children or to provide them with even the bare necessities – clothing, food, school equipment or a safe home. Other parents do not want their children to be too financially restricted. They are prepared to leave their children in Moldova and go abroad in order to seek work. Many children remain with their grandparents and do not see their parents for months or even years. Some parents never return. Of course, such a loss does not leave the children unaffected.

In Ceadîr Lunga, the wortundtat aid for children is currently concentrating on projects, which the town administration or the Gagauzia government are unable to fund, in spite of an urgent necessity: the renovation of public schools was carried out with our financial support. Apart from repairing roofs or setting up food stores, wortundtat had also new windows fitted in several kindergartens. Becoming aware of defects or shortages in such facilities, wortundtat checks whether help is possible – without letting the town administration off the hook. Since 2010, wortundtat has helped children from particularly deprived families to get a kindergarten, place giving them the opportunity to experience how to play and learn with other children in the same age group.

In 2013, together with its partner Gloria, wortundtat started to set up a day nursery In Vulcanesti, another town in Gagauzia.
