Education 4 Life Romania

Professor Woden Teachout, U.S. Fulbright Scholar at "Lucian Blaga" University of Sibiu in the 2nd semester of the 2018-2019 academic year, was also involved in volunteering work, accompanied by her children. Here is the description of one of these activities: “The program is called Education 4 Life Romania, and it's based in Hosman, outside of Sibiu. It is an ecumenical Christian program run by Sorin Boica. Children come after school and get a full meal, help with their homework, and time playing outdoors. Many come from very poor families and would not get a full meal otherwise. The program also sponsors Hosman children to go to high school in Sibiu by sponsoring their bus passes. We helped with serving and cleaning up the meals, tutoring help for homework, practicing English, and distributing food. We also helped supervise the games on International Children's Day. It was a great experience.”
