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.

Massive progress, we are nearly done with the new greenhouses!
By Damien Thiery - Managing Director
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,
Bio&Co, a project by Ateliere Fara Frontiere

Project Report: 500 Computers for Romania's Kids
By Tara Duveanu - Comms Manager
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.
Thank you for all your support in the implementation of this project. You can follow the platform you have helped build and see what we're up to today on the Facebook page we created for the EduClick computer donation platform: fb.com/educlick.ro
