The donation campaign carries on!

Dear supporter,

 

2020 was challenging, the pandemy disturbed our activities, especially in the 2nd trimester.

In the meantime, hundreds of thouthands of children in Romania are still home during this period, with most schools remaining closed, and with no access to education. 

Our determination to help them and donate quality reconditionned computers to the highest number of schools in rural areas is therefore stronger than ever!

The business community sustained strongly our actions and we will nearly manage to achieve our original target for 2020.

Thank you GlobalGiving Donours, despite that we did not reach our goal, your help contributed to enabling to continue our activity in this very tensed period and to help further education in Romania!

 

Best regards,

We installed all the greenhouses!

The greenhouses have been built and we even started growing vegetables in them!

We are thankful to all our donours and sponsors, who enabled Ateliere Fara Frontiere to build the greenhouses. They enable Ateliere Afara Frontiere to envisage 2021 in the best conditions, to ensure the production of eco-certified vegetables that  they will be delivered locally to all our clients, and most importantly to keep the employment contract of Bio&Co's beneficiaries.  

The contribution of GlobalGiving donours enabled Bio&Co to dedicate its team to the set up of the greenhouses which was key in ensuring well mounted and efficient greenhouses.

An inauguration was carried out in October 2020, respecting all the necessary sanitary conditions, with the presence of Mrs Laurence Auer, Ambassador of the French Republic in Romania, and of Mr Ionut Catalin Nica, General Secretary of the Minister of Agriculture.

A big thank you to all of you for your suppport!!!

Slow start, but we do not give up!

 

Schools has been carried out online during the pandemy. Romanian Ministry of Education now announces that schools may still be online starting from September 2020. 

 

There are 900 000 pupils with no access to technology in Romania, and therefore who cannot be taught in present time.

We offer reconditionned computers to disadvantaged children. Our goal for 2020 was to donate 3000 computers.

 

Our activity is slowed down due to the fact that we cannot collect as many used computers as originally expected due to the slowing down of the economy. We also face a strong challenge in gathering funds in order to finance our activity and particularly our donation program.

 

We still aim a giving as many computers as possible to disadvantaged children despite the current adverse conditions.
