The duration of this project: 14 months

The South of Romania is one of the most underdeveloped areas from this country, with a low capital and touristic potential. Nevertheless, from 2006, since PACT works in the South of Romania, we have come to know stories about people who wish to leave active and strong communities behind.

Nowadays, those people with initiative live in a Romania that isn’t as visible as statistics show. That’s why PACT Foundation, in partnership with Decat o Revista (DOR) had launched the People of the South project.

Through the project’s activities, four community based organizations learned to bring new resources in their communities and promoted their initiative at local, regional and national level.

  • Several workshops were organized, according to the most significant change method, such as organizational communication, fundraising and storytelling workshops.
  • The members of the community based organizations got involved in these activities, learning techniques and methods which would help highlight their potential.
  • Alongside, the online platform People of the South, developed in this project, put together stories about these people with initiative and South communities wherein good changes happened.
