Buftea, October 16, 2016: 3 months after the launch of the educational project “Vocational Laboratory”, the first graduates of the free courses offered by Ciprian Marica Foundation presented their design, drawing and painting works and staged the play “Addicts” before a large audience.
In June, Ciprian Marica Foundation announced in partnership with Buftea Gymnasium no.1 , the launch of an educational project “Vocational Laboratory”, by which hundreds of children from this school would benefit from free courses of acting, creative writing, public speaking, product and interior design, mathematics, computer science, drawing and painting.
After 3 months of sustained work together with the volunteering professors of the project, Mrs. Ileana Răducanu, Mr. Vasile Hăisu and Casian Pătrășcanu (scholar of the foundation), the first graduates of the courses revealed their progress in an event that delighted the audience.
The children present at the event presented their design, drawing and painting works, beauty of such works being comparable to the works of renowned artists.
Pupils between 10 and 14 years old took advantage of the large audience in the auditorium and drew the attention, through a series of speeches, to the problems they noticed in education and in the healthcare system, but also opened their hearts and spoke about love, indifference or the pain caused by the parents’ absence.
The most spectacular moment of the event was the play called “Addicts”, a show in which the children revealed how hard it is for them to live without phones, games, social networks or TV. Impressed by the interpretation, the audience rewarded the young actors with extended applause.
Ciprian Marica, who attended the event, thanked the parents for their openness towards the courses of the foundation and promised them that he will try to diversify the disciplines studied to meet the desires and needs of their children. He also specified that he began his sports career at his grandmother’s counsel and would be proud if the children found their vocation through the programs initiated by the foundation.
