Project Title: I want to be a doctor!

Changemaker:  Cosmin Curelaru

Message for the world: Every child has the right to specialized medical services!

1. Previous experience 

No, I have never organized such activities before.

2. The Problem 

My biggest dream is to become a doctor even-though I have not much support for it. I am motivated by the fact that in my village, Zmeu, where 80% of the population is represented by the Rroma community, we don't have access to proper medical care.  Most of the children have never been to a doctor. I would like myself to learn more about how I can become a doctor and to encourage other children from my village to see it as a career option.

3. The Solution

I want to organize a series of meetings with a doctor, a medical specialist and a nurse to talk to 15 participating children about the importance and role of the medical profession, about its challenges but also about its advantages and disadvantages. The participants will be children interested to learn about medical care and about the needed steps to do to follow a medical career. To organize the events, I will have the support of the Day Center for Rroma Children, from my village.

4. Beneficiaries: 

15 children from Zmeu village.

5. Team:  

5 persons (2 adults and 3 children) will help me to implement the project.

6. Objective: 

I want to promote the importance of medical care and career among 15 children from Zmeu village, by organizing 3 meetings with doctors and medical specialists.

 7. Project duration:  

2 months (March-April 2021)
