It comes as a surprise to many Romanian-Americans that Romania has one of the very lowest literacy and school attainment rates in the EU – due primarily to the inadequacy of its rural schools – where half of Romania’s children still reside. The knowledge that early education is the single most effective investment a society can make in adult literacy, led OvidiuRo’s leaders, in 2020, to make a 5-year plan to:
- Train all of Romania’s preschool teachers in early literacy methods,
- Equip every kindergarten with a collection of picture books, and
- Give every child at least one book to take home!
