Phoenix Group Nonprofit is committed to improving the life of deprived children and young adults living in small rural communities, in the heart of Romania.

Often too shy, doubtful, and disappointed, they give up on their dreams, unable to live up to their potential. Even the very bright ones lack courage and wings. The tragic surrounding reality has made them distrustful of the future. They become prisoners of the second-rate society they are born in, where poverty, despair and ignorance are king, and nobody cares about excellence. Their only fighting chance lays in education.

We seek to give them the educational oportunities they need to thrive in society, and to offer sustainable options to their current way of life.


ONE CHILD'S STORY

ELENA, 23 YEARS OLD:

“My mother couldn’t care less about my school. She was annoyed that I was 'wasting time' learning, instead of babysitting my brothers. 'I don't understand why you even bother, Elena!', she said, while peeling the last few potatoes for a soup...'What is this obsession with high school? What good will it do you? Aren't there enough prunes who went to high school, and are walking around doing nothing? You see we barely have enough to eat, still you keep dreaming about some kind of magic door opening for you, IF you go to high school! Who is going to pay for these dreams of yours, Elena, have you thought about that?'. I somehow began to think that she was right. I felt small and ashamed.[...]"

But Elena refused to give up. She wanted the power to choose what lied ahead, and she was strongly convinced that education will help her do that.[...]
