Experience has shown, many members of the public still remember the terrible conditions of Romania, especially for the children in orphanages. What we can do is provide an opportunity to visit for a week and offer some voluntary work. You don't need to have specific skills, just a big heart and want to make a difference. There are big advantages of being part of a team and sharing the experience.
So, whether you're part of a community group wanting to share skills/experiences or, a team with work colleagues, neighbours, family, fellow students.... we can offer a 'tailor-made' team visit just for you. Whilst it may seem impossible or complicated, you don't need to worry because we'll help you every step of the way.
For your company or University placement we can provide administration support, helping with mentoring and assessment. Bringing a team from your company as part of CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) will be great! We're also keen to see personal development and team work, by mixing voluntary work in our projects with little tourist visits.
We can consider individual requests but just the same as being part of a team, we insist on each person having an up to date DBS certificate. This is not to be difficult, but to protect those most vulnerable with whom we work.
Our main projects are supporting people with additional needs, but we also like to make a visit to other types of projects and this could be an orphanage, centre for elderly, or a feeding programme for homeless.
We look forward to seeing you here in Romania. You will discover, by doing a small amount can make a big difference.
