Newsletters from Romania

Our staff in Romania regularly put together a newsletter which is sent to volunteers working in Romania at the time, those signed up to join a project in Romania and to previous volunteers. The newsletters contain information about the country and our projects, stories written by volunteers, advice on what to expect when volunteering abroad in Romania and much more. If you're considering overseas voluntary work the newsletters are a great way to gain a better idea of what to expect.

  • Newsletter from Romania - Charity Show
    Romania Newsletter - March 2014

    On the 27th of February 2014, Projects Abroad Romania Team were extremely proud and happy to present once again our Charity Show, ‘Iubind Daruiesti, Daruind Primesti’ (Loving is Giving, Giving is receiving), which reached its 7th edition. Being initiated in 2008, when I started to work for Projects Abroad Romania, our concerts ended up becoming charity shows, being a great method of raising funds for our care placements that most needed it.

    During my time in Romania I have been working for the wonderful foundation called ‘Fundatia Rafael’ in Codlea. This is an organization that dedicates itself to the support, care, education, guidance, training and community integration of disabled people. It thereby ensures the welfare of disabled people in Codlea and its surroundings areas.

    Romania Newsletter - October 2013

    Before I arrived in Romania, my image of the country was not so good. All we Japanese really hear about Romania is that it is a former communist country, that Nicolae Ceausescu was one of the worst dictators in the world, or about the violent revolution.

    Romania Newsletter - July 2013

    When I first arrived in Romania I remember feeling both very excited and apprehensive at the same time. I had already done a voluntary placement a few years ago so I kind of knew what to expect, but it was still unknown territory and I had never lived with a host family before.

    When I first got in touch with the Romanian team in Brasov to assist me with planning my two month trip, I was so happy, as they communicated with me regularly to step by step plan my trip and arrange my placements.

    Romania Newsletter - May 2013

    All of the Romanian life and culture is a novelty to me coming from Japan. I think Brasov is a town that has many churches, interesting cultural buildings and defensive walls. When I went around Brasov, I thought I wanted to look over the whole town, so, I walked up to the highest place. When I arrived up the hill, North-East from the central park, I could look out at the whole Brasov's scenery.

  • Newsletter from Romania - Romania is incredible by Chris Murphy
    Romania Newsletter - April 2013

    Romania is incredible. I know that sounds like a sappy, generic statement, but I am honestly struggling to put into words my experience. I have spent the last twenty minutes typing, deleting, and typing again the introduction to this entry, and nothing else seems to summarize my three months spent in Romania.

  • Newsletter from Romania - Drama Update
    Romania Newsletter - March 2013

    We at Projects Abroad wish to give our expertise for the creation of this drama group which would improve the spoken English of your pupils.

    Romania Newsletter - January 2013

    You can’t get lost in Brasov. It’s a beautiful town in a valley surrounded by mountains with a huge B-R-A-S-OV sign a la Hollywood, on the closest hill. Unexpected sure, but you can see it from wherever you are in the town so it’s a beacon home. It used to be S-T-A-L-I-N. They cut down trees on the mountain in the shape of the Dictator’s name. That’s gone now. Clearly.
