POVESTEA is a unique program which supports heads of school, teachers, and parents in the schools in Romania, transforming schools in communities of trust, kindness, and joy.
In the POVESTEA project, each school undergoes a five year process. In the first two years, schools benefit from the basic interventions, which address mainly teachers and staff. This is followed by an audit, whose conclusions delineate an intervention plan tailored to that specific community, for the following two years. In the final year, representatives of each school prove that they want and that they are able to sustain the school’s transformation, thus obtaining the „Școala încrederii” (School of trust) certification. This certification is maintained through an annual contribution of effort, time, and energy in the school.
