Melitta's Dream

"I grew up in a Christian family of six in Romania but my parents struggled to find employment and we did not have much," she said. "We had to move a lot and I could never settle at school.  I always dreamed of going to college, but I never thought it would be possible."

Hearing about Mission Without Borders' After School project in a nearby village, Melitta asked to volunteer. After excelling and demonstrating a caring servant heart, she was offered a scholarship. It covered tuition fees, school supplies, transportation and some living costs.

"It has been an amazing opportunity ... to study and to get hands on experience working with children. I am passionate about helping children who have been injured or who have health problems. I am so grateful to the Mission for helping me to achieve my dream."

Melitta's future plans include qualifying as a nurse and to work in a children's hospital. By investing in her education, Melitta is now skilled, trained and able to put her Christian faith into action in some of the toughest parts of Romania.

For every child and teenager we serve, the journey is long and difficult. But with your donation, we can perhaps help one more child towards a better future.
