I Romania fikk AMURT støtte av EØS midler fra Norge, fra 2014 til 2016. Nå har alle rapporter blitt godkjent. Prosjektet gikk ut på bl.a. jobbskaping blant Roma-folk og skjedde i samarbeid med AMURTEL. I juni ble det organisert konsert i Oslo til støtte for prosjektet, plakat følger under.

Om tidligere aktivitet: “… AMURT Romania completed all the projects (Children’s
Home 1993-2008, Homeless Youth 2009-2015, and Roma project 2014-2016). All
were successful projects such as the homeless youth where 8 youths out of
10 succeeded to leave the street by receiving life skill training
(cooking, cleaning, money management, job seeking and emotional support),
vocational skill diploma and jobs. In those six years AMURT supported 130
youths. Currently AMURT runs temporary social accommodation for
disadvantage youths in AMURT’s apartments in Bucharest. We have 11 youths”.

From the Roma project which was funded by Norway/EEA grants, AMURT still
have a loan of 1,900 Euro which was to cover AMURT’s co-funding. Norway
gave 64,000 Euro and AMURT gave 7,000 Euro.

You Too – Come and participate!

Our successful work with the homeless youths since 2009, will be changed to more urgent services. On 23rd December 2014, AMURT, AMURTEL Romania, PEN Bulgaria and our great volunteers organized the first successful event with the Roma community in Domnesti. The EEA/Norway Grants supported project to reduce poverty among Roma and other ethnic groups by facilitating the practice of democratic citizenship and increasing employment opportunities.

Before the event, several meetings were held to get a broader  understanding about the Roma culture and history, and finding the best  starting approach when not familiar with this new project. Here is the  successful and magical event on video.

AMURT Romania’s mission, to strive for services providing Self-development and Socio-economic independence, will be extended in 2015 to other  vulnerable target groups as well.

Romania – Youth Progams

The training has two programs. In “Transitional Living Program” the youths receive housing, motivational counseling, and life skills and career training. In a subsequent “Independent Living Program” outside the Center, they learn the real independent life in an apartment, holding a job, paying rent, and taking care of other related life matters by themselves.
