Romanian and Bulgarian children, marked by poverty

Romanian and Bulgarian children, marked by poverty

The lives of millions of children continue to be marked by poverty, in Romania and Bulgaria children are twice as prone to poverty as adults, a UNICEF representative said at the European Parliament's debate on children's rights yesterday. On the other hand, European officials are also worried that, unfortunately, there is no legal basis to allow the European Union to act directly in this sector. But one possible solution is to include social education, but especially financial education in the school program in EU member states, concluded the executive director of Aflatoun / Child Savings International, Jeroo Billimora.
