August is a critical time of year for young people in Eastern Europe. School-leavers are deciding what their next step will be. Parents are asking themselves if they can afford to equip and send their sons or daughters to college. Current students are hoping to resume and complete courses and qualifications.
There are many teenagers like Ana was (pictured above); living in a boarding home in Moldova since her father passed away and her mother could not provide for her. At these homes children have little chance of completing their education and being able to provide for themselves when they leave.
Thanks to you and many others supporters Ana is now in her fourth year of university studying to be a doctor! Through your support her tuition fees are covered, plus her transport, food and school supplies.
