Our school is situated in the city of Galati, in a densely populated worker-inhabited area, lately considered at a disadvantage because of the ever-increasing rate of unemployment. 10 % of the students are in difficulty because of the following: they belong to mono-parental families, at least one of the parents works abroad, they live on the minimum wage, they have chronic diseases, they live in placement families, they belong to disadvantaged ethnic groups, divorced families with under-aged children given to one parent’s care, etc. 20 % of the students are settled in the rural area and commute every day because they cannot afford to live in the city.
