  • Description


    We are a small dutch foundation focused on the community Costuleni on the border of Moldova. Our history started just after the fall of Ceausescu with the transportation of goods and cloths, at that time immediate help was needed. In 2011 we made the transition to facilitation and working together with the local grass root organizations in small welfare projects with the focus on the development of the children (and adults).

    Every one (child) must have the opportunity to explore his or her talents!
