Counselling for 300 children in Romania

Counselling for 300 children in Romania

Dear supporters,


We are pleased to inform you that we have been busy in the past  couple of months - with another 10 children admitted into our counselling programme.

Summer is on the way and new requests for counselling have been knocking on our door - however in order to fulfill all of those needs - we need your help.

We are still a long way from our goal!

Today, I want to share with you our latest achievement - 5 young people with talented sports abilities will participate in a partner programme in New Zealand! They will travel to one of the greatest rugby academies in the world to train with the best of the best mid June!

Children need us to be on their side working towards a better future for all!

Thank you!

Dear Supporters,


First of all, from all of us at Te Aud Romania we hope you have had a great start of the year and we wish you all the best for the rest of 2019!

We have started the year rather shy, however we are continuously improving and exploring opportunities on how we can further develop our work. In my last project report, I was talking about the great sports bursaries that we are offering to talented individuals in disadvantaged communities. Part of the sports bursary, the children are also part of a personal development and counselling programme.

We are now considering replicating the personal development programme to be offered to children in need, even tough they are not part of our bursary project. The success based on the constant and supporting meetings with our team of specialists tells us that we must replicate the programme in other areas as well.

This idea is a new addition to the programs we are continuously developing for orphans and children in need.

Thank you so very much for playing a big part in our work and helping us to continue our endeavour for a better life for orphans and disadvantaged children.

P.S. I have included a link from a great project we have developed at the end of last year. The management team from Blake Envelopes UK visited us in Romania to help run our SCHOOL IN A BAG campaign but also to mark the start of another great project we are running together. But more on this soon!!


Dear donors,

Te Aud Romania is continuously improving and striving to provide orphans and disadvantaged children with opportunities to stop the vicious cycle they are in.

You play the most important part on our way to success. In my last project report, I was mentioning our personal development programme for 11 disadvantaged rugby players - as part of a sports bursary programme. I am proud to announce you that with help from our two main sponsors, DHL Express Romania & Banca Comerciala Romana - we have increased the number of bursaries we are offering this year to 20. The first meeting of our personal development programme took place last week. We are all looking forward to providing these children with the extra support needed - that they otherwise would not receive.


However, we cannot do this by ourselves. We would also like to continue our 1:1 counselling programme for other children - either orphans or from disadvantaged backgrounds . We have already identified children that would massively benefit from our 1:1 counselling programme. And to do that - we need your support.


Thank you very much for your continuous help! Together we are making a difference in the lives of so many children!


Thank you so much for supporting our Counselling Project. We continuously work to give children the chance to RECOVER from trauma or emotional abuse they have suffered. At the same time, through our workshops, group counselling and personal development programmes we aim to help orphans and disadvantaged children integrate within their communities and help them contribute to a better society in the future.

Your contributions made it possible to provide children with 1:1 counselling. Since December up to now - our number of children that has been provided with 1: 1 counselling has been increasing.

We have also started a personal development programme for 11 diasdvantaged children part of the local rugby club  - to encourage them to perform better in school, overcome their emotional issues and give them a sense of group belonging.

The extra help is so wonderful for them, as it gives these children from very disadvantaged backgrounds, support with their education, which they usually would not receive. 

All of this is only made possible with your help and support - THANK YOU!

If you would like to continue to help children in need, you can also make a donation as a gift to someone else. To do this, just make sure to chose the option "make your donation in honour of someone", when you make a contribution through our GlobalGiving page. 

Thank you so very much for your ingoing support for the TAR community. Together we are making a difference in the lives of so many children! 

All of us as children fear that we would lose one of our parents or, even worse maybe both. However, one can never be prepared enough for the effect of such an overwhelming impact the death of a parent can have on a child.

When Alina first came in to our offices with her mum, she was devastated – she had lost her dad 3 months ago and could not recover from the tragedy. Her school performance weakened ever since and the teacher reported that most times she just stares through the window in the empty space during classes. Her mother brought her in to our programme for the first time 3 weeks ago, being desperate about how to help her child heal and go through the grief process. Currently, our therapist is working with Alina to open up, process her feelings and eventually accept the loss of her parent in order to return to her normal life.

Alex is a child that has been abandoned when he was two and ever since he has been moving around in different foster homes. He is now 15 and extremely intelligent – he is performing very well in school, however he joined our programme with behavioural issues. A life of pain, emotional distress and lack of a feeling of belonging makes him behave like he is always in defensive, argumentative, gets nervous easily and constantly struggles to fit within the society. With help from our therapist, we aim to set Alex on the right track, appeal to his brilliant intelligence, teach him to love oneself and see that he is worthy of a bright future.

These are just two of the most recent cases that our counselling programme is addressing – these are the type of children that we are helping – the ones in high emotional distress that otherwise would be left with hard to handle traumas in life.

We cannot do this alone and we are thankful for your help in making this happen!

As an organisation, we are thriving to help as many children as possible – by including group counselling as part of our project! Between 1 -19 November 2017 we have been part of a series of group counselling sessions for over 120 orphans in the area with the theme – Where there is love, violence does not exist!

At the same time, we have tested 202 children from schools in the area to identify children that need help healing the most.

On the 14th of November, we will travel to a school in a rural area near Gura Humorului where our team of counsellors will talk to over 100 children about the dangers of social media/online communications.

We are constantly developing ways of ensuring that every orphan and disadvantaged child realises their full potential and overcomes the emotional distress that sometimes makes them part of a vicious cycle of unhappiness, misery and eventually bad habits.

But we cannot do this alone – your support is helping us shape the lives of every child part of our counselling programme!
