School for Life Romania

The next step towards independence



Providing life experiences and opportunities to orphaned and abandoned children and young adults in Romania since 1991…

“School for Life Romania has changed these people’s lives by providing education and activities for young adults who would not otherwise have received it. They have employed Romanian special needs teachers who work alongside these young adults and support their journey towards independence.”

Robert Carlyle OBE, Patron

Romanian Orphan

Lenuta and Rodika both grew up in the neuropsychiatric hospital for 510 children in Siret. They now live in School For Life Romania supported housing, working in town and helping out at our school.

“I love my work here, teaching the lads and working around the house. I love teaching them sport and how to look after animals, and the colour games and how to draw. I am very happy to help the students from the hospital, they are just like me, there is very little difference. I feel confident about the future and what I’m doing and feel that I’ll be able to do whatever I choose to.”

“I like the girls and enjoy talking with them and helping them. If they are unable to come one day they will stay in their rooms and cry. I am teaching myself to look after myself. I have taught the students how to look after the garden and they love it… when they grow up they will have their own house and will need to look after themselves. I like everything here, I can’t lie, I like it all!”

    “Our human compassion binds us the one to the other – not in pity or patronizingly, but as human beings who have learnt how to turn our common suffering into hope for the future.” Nelson Mandela
