Overcoming to Learn in Romania


What a difference a pair of boots can make!

Each day, millions of girls around the world can’t step into a classroom. Instead, neglect, abuse, and poverty create seemingly insurmountable barriers to their education, resulting in about 496 million women who can’t read and write today. World Vision works in nearly 100 countries to help girls overcome these barriers so they can attend school, improve their lives, and help advance their communities.

Raluca, 7, right, is one of only 25 children who live in Mosna, Romania. The children attend school in the next village over, but when it rains or snows, the unpaved road becomes impassable. Because the school bus can’t reach them, she and the other children have to walk almost 5 miles to get to their classes. A World Vision donation of winter boots brought the children comfort for their long walk—and brings comfort to their families, as it’s one less concern for parents.
