Through its mission, the Bethany Foundation for Social Services has pledged to intervene in two important areas: education for vulnerable children and rehabilitative therapy services for children with disabilities. Our programs aim to support children with neuromotor problems and encourage quality education in rural areas.
Educating children from disadvantaged backgrounds is a priority, especially since data shows that in rural areas, 1 in 5 children drops out of school. The organization annually supports the operation of after-school school centers in Târgu Fromos and two rural communities in Iai, and currently more than 140 children from rural and disadvantaged areas receive weekly educational support consisting of help with homework, daily meals and supplementary educational activities. At the same time, 40 young high school students from rural areas are part of the START Scholarship Program, where they are supported financially and through professional and personal development activities that will enhance their future.
Last but not least, we focus on children with disabilities through recovery centers where they receive free therapy sessions. In 2012, the organization opened a Center for Recovery, a center that was mainly supported over time by the proceeds of charitable football in La Castel, and in 2021 we were able to open a second program of this kind and at the Day Center in Târgu Fromos. Currently, through the two centers, we support 58 children with neuromotor disabilities‘, announced Diana PĂIUȘ, Regional Director at Bethany Social Services.
