It is incredible some people in which circumstances live in this days in European Union. The effect of the communist principle was a disaster for the majority people who lived in Romania. Between 1980 and 1989 Nicolae Ceausescu led the country into an incredible deep poverty. Twenty-eight years after the fall of the Communist regime the poverty caused by the Ceausescu regime in many places feel in Transylvania. My project presents poor children who live in deep poverty in diverse Transylvanian places where the unemployment, un-schooling, and uneducated rate is high.
