Ioana how long have you been involved in the Stupinikids club?

Ioana

I met Lacra when I was only 10 years old when she ran a kids club in Stupini, when I was 14 I started coming to the homework club which Lacra ran. I have now been volunteering at the homework club now for 4 years now.

Why did you decide to start coming to the homework club when you were 14?

Ioana

Some of my friends went there and it sounded good. Plus I realized that I needed help in completing my homework and to finish my schooling.

How did you get on at school?

Ioana

I have now finished my school and passed all my exams 2 years ago now. I started university this year doing a degree in Social Work.

StupiniKids

Could you have passed your exams without the help of the Stupini homework club?

Ioana

No I know that I wouldn’t have completed my schooling if I hadn’t come to the Stupinikids homework club. Coming to the homework club helped me to pass my exams which wouldn’t have happened if I didn’t come here.

So you are a fantastic example of the evidence of how important homework clubs are. Now you are a volunteer at the Stupinikids centre. Why did you decide to volunteer?

Ioana

Someone helped me and I also want to help other kids. So basically we are helping to shape these kids futures.

StupiniKids

So in your experience is the homework club important for the kids?

Ioana

Definitely it helps kids through their education and if you want a good future it’s vital that you have an education.

StupiniKids

So what are your long term plans now?

Ioana

I will finish my Social Work degree and hopefully do a masters and then work as a Social Worker.
