Smiling child at school in TincaHAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US!

This week, we at People 2 People Foundation are celebrating our 18th Anniversary! (in Romania this means we are grownups now:) ) It is a moment of joy, but also a moment of self assessment and planning for the future.

We know for sure IT’S NOT ABOUT US, it never was - IT'S ALL ABOUT THEM! About all the CHILDREN, WOMEN, MEN and FAMILIES we have met these years. It is about abandonment, tragedies, broken dreams, plans, success and sometimes failures. Is about having PEOPLE on our focus and trying to build a different future, a more empowered and brighter one. PEOPLE pushed us forward despite all the hard work and sometimes frustrations.

And as we want to continue this, we are donating our birthday to PEOPLE and we are happy to receive your birthday gifts! Would you please consider to support our vision and our work? 

We would like to dedicate the gifts received this week into our RESTORE CENTER - after care program for survivors of human trafficking - beautiful children with heartbreaking stories, powerful women and men that have the strength to go through tragic situations - and still fight for their future.

NO GIFT IS TOO SMALL!  Please donate now to PEOPLE to PEOPLE

To all of our supporters out there, THANK YOU for all these years you served with us and supported our work. We couldn't have done it without you! We can not do it without you!

Our colleague Simona Tarau is working closely with parents in order to involve them in the educational process of their children. Parents come to organized groups once a week to discover that even though they haven't been to school themselves they can still support their children in doing so. 

Children love it! Parents understand what is happening in school and that there are things they can do to help. Guess what? Children can't wait to teach their parents - shapes, colors, letters, numbers, etc...Some parents became more interested in schooling and want to learn more! There is so much joy and love!

Awareness, prevention, trainings are some of the most powerful tools to fight human trafficking. Equipping ordinary people, reduce vulnerability due to the lack of knowledge and empower people that can fight this battle is what we did this week, in order to mark European day against trafficking in persons! (we do this all year long but this time was special as we celebrated European day against trafficking)
Along with our partners (National Agency against human trafficking CR Oradea Anitp, Police Inspectorate and Abolishion) we met with vulnerable people from rural areas - students, parents and teachers alike. Also discussed with future professionals in different areas how they can prevent or support people affected by this 21st century plaque.

Everyone was invited to join the thunderclap event run by European Freedom Network http://dontshutyoureyes.org/

Special thanks to FSSU - Departamentul de Sociologie și Asistență Socială -for being so opened and supportive, Liceul Teoretic "Nicolae Jiga", Bihor for support, the beautiful kids and parents from ProRoma School in Tinca, and "Mereu impreuna"(Always together) House for neglected and abused children.

Another busy weekend at the border. Aya and Nazir we met these last days. They are a refugee family from Siria that left the country last year and ended up in Romania recently. While staying at home was too dangerous, the decision to leave was difficult also considering they have 5 children - aged between 2 and 13. The difficulty was even greater since the eldest is mentally challenged while the youngest is paralyzed from hypoxia at birth. For now we only support them with their very basic needs - food, water, etc. The integration process is just at the beginning though. The children are tired but smiling, the parents are exhausted but hopeful... It was an inspirational story of courage, hope & unity within family! 

We will be launching a CALL for ACTION soon! Please follow!
