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.
in 2022, we will help at least 700 children and young adults and we will close 2 placement centres
we invest a minimum of 1,050 Euro/year to prevent the separation of a child from their family and at least 2,700 Euros annually to help a young person leaving the placement centre.
to keep 550 children together with their parents and to take care of the Ukrainian children integrated in our programs, we have the objective of raising 2.5 mil. Euro.
over 35,000 Romanians joined us.
