Moldova is the poorest country in Europe and life is particularly hard for orphaned, abandoned and impoverished teens that “age out” of Moldovan orphanages without meaningful job skills. Many turn to crime or prostitution for survival. Wide Horizons sponsors orphans in Moldova to receive vocational training at Insula Sperantelor (Island of Hope). Vocational sponsorships cover job training and living expenses. In addition, psychologists and social workers work with students to help them learn the practical skills they need to live independently. Upon graduation, these young men and women are given jobs, housing assistance and continued support. Change a life through vocational training.
