Blythswood Update 1 – July 5th
Marian, now 21, is glad to be at Blythswood’s Daniel Centre in Cluj, Romania. Unlike most of the young men who come to the Daniel Centre, he already had a job, working in a car wash. And he had already completed two years at trade school, studying to be a motor mechanic.
But young people in Romanian’s care system inevitably miss out on some things – learning to cook, learning to budget and handle money, learning to build lasting relationships and learning to know themselves.
At the Daniel Centre, there are regular group sessions where boys and staff evaluate their behaviour in an open and constructive way, learning to build trust and to identify ways in which they can change for the better.
