Blythswood Update 1 – July 5th
Talita Kum 2
His mother has problems with her lungs. His father is in hospital, suffering from kidney failure. His elder brother is disabled. Cristi is the only one able to keep the family business running. He uses his horse and cart to transport a whole variety of things to enable his parents to pay the rent.
Talita Kum, Blythswood’s after-school programme, encouraged Cristi to stay in school and helped him to catch up. Now he attends Talita Kum 2 which helps young people of secondary school age.
His favourite subject is maths and his grades in this subject are very good after several years of progress.
