Compartir (Romania)

Compartir has been working with young people since 1997. Some of them were coming from the orphanages, so there were many difficult times for them to integrate in the social life.

Its mean aim is to help people to achieve their best personal development, and specially children and young people.

We also work in the Country side, with people of fewer opportunities. Their integration is also more difficult, as they are isolated, not having many opportunities for interacting with different young ones than in the school.
