As part of the project entitled Come to School! Change your destiny! the Romanian Red Cross of Covasna County organized in January-February presentations on personal and intimate hygiene, healthy eating and bullying, for 289 beneficiary children at Întorsura Buzăului, Barcani, Doboșeni and Sânzieni.
Vlăduț Muscalu is a child who, apparently, fits into what we call normality: a sixth grade student with mediocre results, cheerful, energic, always in action. Only the absences section caught our attention because there were whole days when he did not attend school.
In the commune of Sânzieni and the related villages, the Roma community is poor due to absence of education.
From this project I learned that if there was still a need to be a teacher, it does not mean to plan some activities, to enter the class, to teach a lesson and to go out, closing the door behind you. To be a teacher means to open the door of your soul to the souls of the students, to see in the children the happiness, the suffering, the joy, the emotion, the states that are behind each personal history of these students. But this requires time and availability, it means trust on both sides, which is gained over time.
