Habitat for Humanity fights for decent housing for people in vulnerable communities. Like Habitat for Humanity, we strongly believe that everyone has the right to a warm home, which is why we try to support them in their projects in Romania. The year 2022 was a year full of beautiful projects among which Habitat for Humanity volunteers built 12 homes from scratch in 2 disadvantaged communities, inaugurated an educational centre dedicated to vulnerable children, completed a quadruplex for less fortunate families, supported Children's Villages towards gaining energy independence and through the rehabilitation and energy efficiency of a building and provided support to refugees in Ukraine. In 2023 almost 20 colleagues were actively involved in the renovation of the BufKids social canteen dedicated to children from vulnerable families, working for a day to insulate the walls of the building. We are glad to have been able to join them in these endeavours that offer hope and joy to those who need it most.
A healthy mind in a healthy body.

Based on the motto From Play to Performance, the aim of the project is to attract as many children as possible to handball and to contribute to the selection and training process for high performance.

casa buna
The Casa Bună Association started from the belief that every child has the right to an education, a warm home and decent living conditions. Casa Bună volunteers organize both constant educational actions for vulnerable children and one-off mobilizations according to the needs they identify in different communities.
And as doing good is contagious, we share their desire to offer a better life to the vulnerable, which is why we have been with them since 2020.
In 2022, we were happy to join the cause of helping children to get through the cold weather more easily, thus motivating them to continue going to school with pride. Thus, we supported Casa Bună Association to prepare packages of warm clothes and shoes, which reached vulnerable children in Argeș county.
We support young people who do things with passion, which is why, from 2022, we are supporting the ACS Super Time Association and by default Maia, a young girl who is passionate about riding. After just one year of performance, in 2018, Maia won 1st place in the Beginner Athletes category and the National Championship Final for the Children 1 criteria. Since then, the road has led her to hundreds of hours of training and participation in numerous national and international competitions. Maia was Balkan Champion in the Children's category in 2020 and National Vice Champion in 2019 and 2020, along with many podium finishes. The 16 year old athlete aims to compete in 2023 in National Championship competitions as well as international competitions and we are glad to be able to join her in her endeavours to bring Romania to the podiums of this noble sport.
