Folk Dance

By the way, a treat during our stay in Vurpar was the Final Day Program at the School. Kids dressed up in traditional costumes and presented music, drama, dance, and poetry. Afterwards, the teachers treated us to a long, long lunch.

A dozen students receive $20 a month from the Vurpar Project to pay for room and board at high schools in Sibiu. Many of them are sponsored by Lions Club members who went with us to Vurpar in 2000. A few more Lions have been convinced by Jim Cameron that helping these kids with their education is a simple, cheap and successful way of rebuilding Romania and just simply doing the right thing.

Fixing Food

So, during this trip we met with most of the recipient students to explain what the Project expects from them in exchange for our help. A nicer bunch of kids you could not find. A more polite respectful bunch you could not find. It is a joy to help kids who are showing high grades, excellent attendance and are making their parents proud. Many of the parents of the students came to the meeting, too, and you could tell by the looks in their eyes, their body language and what they said that they were deeply appreciative of the help.

(By the way, if you want to sponsor a student just send an email to us. 100% percent of the money goes to the student's education. There is not administrative expense. We are all volunteers and our friends in Vurpar who monitor the program are also volunteers.)
