COVID-time report

As most individuals and organisations, Romi's Way has been affected by the COVID-19 and a lot of our planned activities have come to halt (temporarily). Although this time has been extremely frustrating and there may not be a lot to report since March 2020, we can report that we have not spend any project funds nor implemented any activities during this period. We are waiting to receive an update from our partner in Azores (Caritas Portugal), who due to COVID19 also had to postpone the distribution event of clothing and good collected by Romi's Way team to support the Hurricane 2020 affected school communities & families in the islands. We are hoping to receive the news on the item distributions in July. We know, now more than ever, vulnerable families are in need of support. 

Although not much results are shown in the past few months, we have managed to develop our work in other ways.

We have presented our Green Leadership Programme (of which this project is a part of) concept note to some potential partners from non-profit and private sectors whom we think would be a great match to support our vision to create a balanced world where children are taught to care for the environment, animals and for other humans through compassion, kindness and real understanding of Life. This is to educate the next generation with skills that the planet needs in future, shifting the focus from economic growth and 'me-centred' thinking towards ecological health and 'we-centred' thinking. Our CEO has held meetings (online) with a potential partner from a private sector who loves our vision and is interested supporting a first Green Leaders School to be established in Portugal. We aim for nothing less than an educational revolution :) in other words, we are hoping to inspire traditional educational systems to include changes in their ways of teaching and perhaps hoping to create more schools like our Green Leaders School. More news about this later on - for now, please keep your fingers and toes crossed for the partnership to be formed. 

Lastly, we are in discussion to form another partnership with a local non-profit organisation to work on the ethological aspect of this project, hoping to include the equine-assisted healing sessions into the programme. Again, due to the COVID situation, these plans are postponed until September.

We hope to continue our work and plans shortly and look forward to keep you posted with some good news.

With huge thanks for everyone supporting our work - every donation counts and is used 100% for our projects. We are a small organisation with a big vision, and your continuous support is helping us to create a balanced, healthy world the next generation.
