Our mission is to transform the lives of marginalized children and young people from Romania’s poorest communities. Providing a loving family, specialist therapy, access to education and training and preventing homelessness.
Our vision is of a world in which children and young people grow up with freedom and dignity in a loving, protective environment, experiencing fulfilled lives whatever their ability.
Our values underpin all our work and are shared by all those involved in carrying out our mission both in the UK and Romania.
We act with kindness and compassion.
We believe the deepest need of children and young people is to experience genuine love as part of a stable family, where spiritual, social and material needs are generously nurtured.
We respect the human dignity of every person.
We promote inclusiveness, believing every child and young person, whatever their faith or none, has a part to play in society and deserves love and respect as a uniquely gifted person.
We believe in practical hands-on care.
We aim to serve the broadest number of people to the detriment of no one, with a strong preference for serving and enabling the poorest and vulnerable in society.
We strive to build a just society.
We believe in justice for all, where everyone is able to live fulfilled lives regardless of their ability. We seek to be open to change and give a voice to those we serve.
We responsibly collaborate across all sections of society.
We build relationships and partnerships to access services, ensuring our actions are socially and environmentally conscious.
We strive to be a best practice organisation.
We believe in good stewardship of resources entrusted to us, being open and accountable to all our supporters. We strive to keep our administration cost to a minimum.
