WHY DID WE MOVE TO MOLDOVA?
1 in 10 of the population in Moldova is trafficked
The current population is around 3.5 million, based on the current trafficking rates the estimated population by 2050 is 1 million,
Many children living in remote villages do not get the opportunity of an education after the age of 14.
Because of these stats 2016 will see us start to work with a foster home in a small village near Orhei. Our aim is to help the project finish building the home over the next three years so it’s ready to house around 20 children in need of a family and an education.
