Can new warm clothes during a cold winter help put a good student back on track to following her dreams?
Yes! Read how.
Twelve-year-old Denisa has a big dream. She wants to finish school and find a way out of the grinding poverty that affects so many people in her rural Romanian community.
Though she excels in school—always one of the students near the top of her class—her dream is still in jeopardy.
First, her mother had to leave the family to go find work in Italy. Their roof is sagging and Denisa’s father, Marcel, who finds what work he can as a day laborer or building chimneys, doesn’t earn enough money for those repairs.
