The place where Dreams are not Unreachable or ever expire,
they become Reality trough steps of Hard work and Determination!
‘Dream House’ is a residential intervention center for at-risk teenage girls who are coming out of vulnerable family situations within Moldova’s rural communities. Girls left behind in villages due to labor migration or addiction, who are deprived of education, love and care, and who live in poor conditions without proper supervision, are in greater danger of exploitation by the sex industry, child pornography or heavy labor. In response, Dream House provide a 3-year program with behavior support education within a safe and healthy family mode environment, along with well-designed life skills curriculum and holistic character development with an emphasis on dignity, relationships and responsibility. During these years they can finish they high school or get a college degree and get a profession, which is compatible on the Moldavian labor market.
GRADUATES In 2016 Dream House celebrated the graduation of project’s first promotion. Eight girls left the center equipped and prepared to live independently within society. After 3 years of work, the girls became capable to administrate correctly their time and money and to take care of all their daily needs. They are more open with other people, communicative and bold. Learned social and communicative skills, overcoming many of their emotional and social barriers. Almost all of them live in the city, rent apartments, work and continue studies.
