Real Bathrooms for Rainbow Center!

Real Bathrooms for Rainbow Center!

For many people, it may not seem like a big deal. But if you’ve ever had to walk outside in the dark and cold to use an outhouse, perhaps you can begin to appreciate how great it will be for children at the Rainbow Center to have access to proper bathrooms without leaving the building.
Thanks especially to help received from Association AGAPE and FAVOR Westhausen e.V., these long-awaited bathroom facilities will very soon be functional!

Children’s Day at Centrul Curcubeu

June 1 is Children’s Day here in Romania.  This year we invited all of the children from two nearby schools to join us for a fun celebration at Centrul Curcubeu.  With the help of many volunteers, the FAVOR team organized a great variety of activities, games and snacks for the over 80 children who participated.

There was a trampoline, challenging games, a jewelry workshop, face painting, tatoos, a chocolate fountain, karaoke, cotton candy and more!

Catch a glimpse of the fun through these photos and videos!

FAVOR cares for kids

We are a not-for-profit organisation helping children, young people and families in need.    Educational and training programs provide orphans and other disadvantaged youth with opportunities to succeed in life.  Material and humanitarian aid initiatives redirect valuable resources to people who need them.  Motivated volunteers willingly give their time and energy in service to those less fortunate, to “love our neighbours as ourselves.”

FAVOR se îngrijeşte de copii.

Suntem o organizaţie non-profit care ajută copiii, tinerii şi familiile în nevoie. Programele educaţionale şi de formare oferă orfanilor  şi altor  tineri defavorizaţi oportunităţi de a reuşi în viaţă. Iniţiativele  materiale ajutorului umanitar sunt de a redirecţiona resurse valoroase către persoanele care au nevoie de ele. Voluntari bine motivati îsi oferă din toata inima timpul şi energia celor  mai puţin norocoşi, pe baza principilui “să iubim pe aproapele nostru ca pe noi înşine.”

FAVOR liegen Kinder am Herzen.

Wir sind eine gemeinnützige Organisation, die sich um Kinder, Jugendliche und Familien kümmert, die Hilfe brauchen. Bildungs- und Ausbildungsprogramme bieten Waisen und anderen benachteiligten Jugendlichen Chancen, um das Leben erfolgreich zu meistern. Materielle und humanitäre Hilfsaktionen leiten wertvolle Mittel direkt an die Menschen, die sie benötigen. Hoch motivierte Freiwillige opfern dabei bereitwillig ihre Zeit und Energie für diejenigen, die weniger Glück hatten, ganz in dem Gedanken „liebe deinen Nächsten wie dich selbst“.

Bahna Free Store

<!--:en-->Bahna Free Store<!--:-->

The isolated, mainly Roma, community of Bahnawas the site of our last Free Store aid distribution for this year. The local school director helped to organize the venue. He has a personal interest in seeing all of the children get shoes and clothing, so there will be no reasons for them not to attend school. Despite a few rowdy moments, the day’s activity went on quite smoothly. 75 families, with a total of 404 members were served and a lot of smiles were returned.  photos here
