We ensure support and decent living conditions for people at risk, until they are able to overcome their difficulties. We want to improve the lives of these people and encourage them not to lose hope, thus showing them that humanity wins and that support will always be there for them.
Since 1998, we have a series of interventions for vulnerable people, to whom we offer access to decent living conditions and support.
It’s been 24 years since we began helping 34 young people, including their children to develop independent life skills, to be included and supported in social life.
Purpose of the program: Development of independent living skills
The objectives set: Support and social inclusion program for 30 young people at risk of social exclusion and their children.
Direct beneficiaries: 23 young people, indirect beneficiaries: 11 children.
Management of 4 social apartments that accommodate 10 young people at risk and 3 of their children, plus a family with 5 children (2 adults + 5 children)
Management of 1 protected housing “Majilinda” for emergency situations (licensed social service)
Acquiring independent living skills and parenting
- A workshop (8 young people from underprivileged categories, activity carried out in partnership with S.C. Proiect Mozaic SRL, the social enterprise of the association) in which the young people were able to learn and develop relationship and communication skills, learn to work both individually and in a team, learn to follow a schedule. This workshop continued until the outbreak of the pandemic (March 2020).
In January 2018, 20 of these young people had the opportunity to meet Pope Francis personally in a private audience. The young people and all who accompanied them to this meeting experienced the moment with amazement, feeling blessed.
The event also marked 20 years since first meeting them, as abandoned children in orphanages in Bucharest. Our association started its first project of deinstitutionalization of abandoned children in the Victor Babeș and Vidra Hospital with them.
How do we still help them today?
