About this grant

The goal of Pro Vobis National Resource Center for Volunteering is to work with nongovernmental organizations, governmental agencies, and the media to increase the visibility of volunteerism, strengthen the network of volunteer centers in Romania, support public institutions to involve volunteers effectively, and increase its own institutional capacity and sustainability. In the past two years, the grantee coordinated an annual national volunteer week attracting over 5,000 participants, organized conferences and meetings to discuss the development of volunteerism in Romania, and provided training to people and institutions interested in volunteerism. Based in Cluj-Napoca, the grantee has been promoting and developing volunteerism as a viable resource for solving community problems in Romania since 1992.
