NFT Charity Auction Beneficiary
(21.000€ raised)

The funds raised at our NFT charity auction benefit Asociația OvidiuRo whose mission is to make quality early education available to all children in Romania.

READ ME 100 STORIES! is the flagship program of Asociatia OvidiuRo, in partnership with the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Culture, aimed to encourage reading in kindergarten and in the family.

Together with the local communities, we transform public kindergartens in Romania into islands of reading and nature, where children and adults decipher together the secrets of books and the universe and take care of the plants and animals around them.

By 2025, we want to transform all (approximately) 4,500 public kindergartens into kinder-libraries.

Since its launch in January 2021:
* 1,162 kindergartens became kinder-libraries
* 78,000 children participated in daily reading activities
* 3,350 teachers benefitted of literacy based training
* 142,000 books were donated.

OvidiuRo offer the following quality resources, related to the national curriculum:
– carefully selected books for preschoolers and their educators;
– literacy-focused training sessions for children’s educators;
educational resources to organise the activity, according to the reading plan prepared at kindergarten level;
– reading workshops for children, so that preschoolers can develop their vocabulary and love for reading;

The selected and offered books are valuable from a literary point of view and suitable for the preschool age. In the first five years of life, the child’s brain develops 95%. That is why it is important for every child to have access to quality early education and to be exposed to a variety of learning experiences that form the basis of their intellectual development as an adult.
