Prezentare combating poverty in chidhood

  1. 1. Romania
  2. 2. Poverty and social exclusion are processes encountered all over the world. More and more often, social exclusion is employed to explain the poverty phenomenon, without aiming to replace it. The existence of poverty supposes a deficit in financial resources, opposite to social exclusion, an ample and specific concept found at the level of every society, which tries to study the social consequences associated with the participation of individuals in the community life. Social exclusion can be a cause of poverty, conflict and social insecurity; itcan explain why some people or groups remain poor while others manage to transcend this condition, why they dispose of less and less food or get a kind of food that does not ensure the necessary nutritional elements, why they are less involved in the economic and political activities designed forthem or why they have limited access or no access at all to social services. On the other hand, if we take into account the fact that the process of exclusion develops in particular circumstances, when individuals nolonger benefit from minimum living standards or are deprived of the material goods necessary for their subsistence, we can assume that the poverty phenomenon lies at the basis of social exclusion. However, at the same time, those who are excluded are not always poor. It is possible that they have no access whatsoever to community life or to their rights for reasons other than those related to their material status. The condition of poverty reflected by the lack of bare necessities can determine implicitly the condition of social exclusion. Don’t decent living standards also involve participation in the social life? Nevertheless, the fight against social exclusion supposes not only financial resources but also a series of opportunities which will allow the individual or the social class to perceive WELFARE.

  5. 5. One of Romania’s major objectives in the field of preventing and combating social exclusion refers toeradicating child poverty. In order to make efficient the effort of the actions achieved, it is necessaryto make large investments both in family and especially in the valorisation of the children’sintellectual and social potential. Thus, we will create the grounds for these children to become adultswith increased professional competences by means of which to overcome the poverty that theirfamilies face.In 2008, the Romanian Ministry of Education, Research and Innovation initiated the setting up ofsome special classes in the excellence schools from the county capitals, classes to include childrenwith very good results, but who come from families with no resources or who learn in isolatedcommunes, where there are no optimum conditions for study. One of the most important events of theEuropean Year in Romania addresses these children. The event proposed shall consist of a skillscontest (not one of school knowledge), for the children/pupils from the excellence classes with agesranging from 10-14, with a precarious family situation and with exceptional school results. Thecontest shall be coordinated through county work cells, consisting of representatives of the countyschool inspectorates, of the general directorates of social assistance and child protection and of thecounty labour and social protection directorates and it shall promote the children’s involvement in allthe related activities of organisation. The jury may consist of Romanian personalities, who can bejoined by children with special skills. The papers and proposals of the children taking part to thecompetition shall be published on an especially dedicated page on the internet site of the year.
  6. 6. Through this contest the ideas of diversity and access to opportunities will be promoted and, thus, the children will be given the possibility to get involved in various activities: dancing, music, developing local projects and of social participation. It is taken into consideration the selection of a number of about 10 children from each county. At national level about 400 children will compete. Depending on the number of papers received, it istaken into consideration also the possibility to organise two semi-finals. The winners are to be designated based on certain selection criteria focusing on creativity, spirit of initiative and active social participation in the origin community. The prizes will take into account a long tern support for the children, as some means to help themimprove their social skills and performances, such as computers and other electronic means of learning, internet connection, handbooks, encyclopaedias etc. The awarding ceremony shall be held on June 01st, 2010, with the occasion of the International Children’s Day. The 400 children participating to the contest shall be invited and all of them shall receive consolation prizes and participation certificates. Within the event there will be organized a show by the children from various schools, as well as from the child protection system.
