say no to orphanages
in romania, over 4,000 children and teenagers still survive in orphanages. Hundreds of thousands of others live in extreme poverty. We are working to identify a solution for each one of them, to completely eradicate orphanages and to prevent family breakdown due to poverty.
closing down orphanages
we progressed a lot as a country: from 100,000 children institutionalised at the end of the ‘90s, to over 4,000 in 2020. It takes two to four years to close down an orphanage and one of the interventions is the construction of family type home.
supporting young adults leaving orphanages
we increase the independence and the confidence of the youngsters who leave the orphanages, at the age of 18, through actions of social and professional reintegration.
no matter the economic context, we will keep 1,600 children together with their parents over the next 12 months
we invest a minimum of 875 Euro per year to prevent the separation of children from their families.
to keep 1,600 children with their parents, we need to raise 1,4 mil Euro.
over 35,000 Romanians joined us.
