Lack of preschool education increases the risk of early school abandomnent, the need for special education, the rate of unemployment and adult crime.
To counter these negative effects, OvidiuRo and the Ministry of Education are inviting, for the second year in a row, all mayors in Romania to apply for funds to help them get every poor 3-6 year old child in preschool and kindergarten.

The Fiecare Copil in Gradinita initiative was launched in July 2010 and is currently assisting 1,300 children and their families in 19 communities. Results were surprising. The percentage of perfect attendance was almost double compared to attendance in the previous year and grew constantly every month, rising to 84% in March. In all the communities, attendance over this period was the highest in the last three years – and many local coordinators noted that this is by far the highest attendance rate EVER in their communities.
