Your contribution to Ateliere Fara Frontiere's social and eco-certified Bio&co farm was tremendous!

It enabled us to move forward and organise our beneficiaries and permanent team to allocate time to follow up the construction of 3 new greenhouses financed with the help of the Saint Gobain Foundation.

The 3 greenhouses were ordered in June, arrived in July and should be all ready to function by August. The first vegetables coming out from the new greenhouses will appear by the end of 2020 ! :-)

This additional production capacity will enable Bio&Co to produce more vegetable, and subsequently to sell to more clients and therefore to recruit more vulnerable persons from the local community. It also means producing more eco-certified vegetables and having more clients who receive their vegetables locally, contributing to a cleaner planet.

Thank you very much for your generous contribution,

Project Report: 500 Computers for Romania's Kids

More than 8,069 children and young people from kindergartens, schools, high schools, NGOs and other institutions from underprivileged communities in Romania benefited from the educational activities implemented with the IT equipment donated by AFF.

The 500 computers donated by Ateliere Fara Frontiere that were reconditioned in our work integration social enterprise, have since the end of the project and the delivery of the equipment contributed to improving and modernizing teaching and making school and non-formal education more attractive for children and youngsters.

The 45 schools, NGO and public institutions to receive the computers were selected from a total of 245 applications that were uploaded on the educlick.ro website. Their list is available here

Donation ceremony

8.500 children and youngsters from Romania’s most disadvantaged communities have benefited from 500 refurbished computers, with ECOTIC’s support.

45 kindergartens, schools, NGOs and other educational institutions have received today, on May 15th, 500 IT equipment collected from various responsible companies and refurbished by Ateliere Fara Frontiere, with the support of the EPR Scheme ECOTIC.

On Tuesday, May 15th, representatives of the beneficiary schools and NGOs have taken part in Educlick 1/2017’s final ceremony. The best 45 projects have received today 500 plug-and-play computers with the proper software and warranty.

Since then, the schools have plugged in the computers and are now ready to start, fully equiped, the new school year. 

The project started on april 3rd, when Ateliere Fara Frontiere invited the Non Profits and foundations all over the country to apply on www.educlick.ro with their projects using IT to support equal access to a modern education and thus reduce Romania’s digital and educational gap. 245 applications were uploaded on the website and 45 of them were selected by an independent online jury composed of 25 partners and experts on May 3rd. Congratulations to them!

The Educlick 1/2017 project is part of the national digital solidarity program Educlick, through which 10.000 computers have been donated to more than 2.000 projects since 2008 and benefited to 300.000 people, mostly children from disadvantaged target groups.

Thanks to all our donors to be a necessary part of the solidarity chain!
