About this grant

This grant provides core support to the Princess Margarita of Romania Foundation – Romania, a long-time Mott grantee. Since 1990, with oversight by members of the Romanian royal family, the grantee’s principal mission has been to develop and support projects that improve health care and address special needs of children, youth, and the elderly. During the grant period, the grantee will restructure its programs and optimize the size and roles of its board and staff to reflect the changes in its operational environment and the evolving role of HRH Princess Margarita in Romanian society. The grantee’s key achievements to date include strengthening the capacity of over 120 child protection nongovernmental organizations, increasing awareness of institutions and the general public about the rights of the elderly, and promoting income-generating activities in poor communities.
