Maria started high school this year. She lives in a small village outside Brasov and because of the distance to travel each day, she lives in the school's dormitory. She wants to be a teacher when she finishes school. Maria has four siblings. Her father works part time; her mother stays home and cares for the children. Maria receives very good grades in all her classes. She enjoys studying, reading and math. The cost for Maria to live in the high school dormitory is $122 per month which is a lot of money for this family.
Maria needs help with the cost of room and board for school, school supplies, clothing, etc.
