Students from School 12 perform a traditional Moldovan dance during the ribbon cutting for the newly renovated school in Chisinau, Moldova. The students performed the dance as a show of gratitude to the 435th Air Ground Operations Wing’s Construction and Training Squadron, which sent Airmen to perform renovations on four restrooms, two locker rooms and two shower rooms in the school to make them functional and safe to use again.

In a small corner of the world, there is a school that resides in the poorest country in Europe — the Republic of Moldova. This particular school is a special needs school that accommodates students from the ages of kindergarten through high school. In Chisinau, Moldova, more than 150 students, who are to some degree deaf or blind, learn how to become active and functional members of society.
