United Nations Millennium Development Goals

As with every Global Volunteers team, our projects in Romania are geared toward meeting our commitment to the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. Our Romania Partnership addresses three of those goals: To Eradicate Extreme Poverty and Hunger; To Reduce Child Mortality; and To Achieve Universal Primary Education.

Every volunteers works eight hours a day in project preparations and on-site work. We're committed to full-time assistance to the work project. During the July team:

19 children were fed and cared for
1720 Hours of childcare provided by volunteers
$800 USD in food was donated
20 students were taught English
8 Childcare workers salaries were provided
$1800 USD provided for childcare worker salaries
