Romania is currently redeeming its rich heritage following the collapse of an oppressive dictatorship. This charming country embodies the European spirit of past, present, and future. The Transylvania region in central Romania is home to many treasures, among them the idyllic town of Brasov, where our program is located.


Projects

Globe Aware works closely with a local grassroots organization assisting children and adults with special needs such as Downs Syndrome, Asperger’s, and those on the Autism spectrum.


The projects revolve around refurbishments, maintenance and improvements to two day therapy centers, in addition to a variety of “soft touch” interactive volunteer opportunities with our recipient community. The centers offer a variety of services to those in need including specialized forms of therapy, support groups for parents, provide information from specialists aboard - translated and distributed for free, and conduct assessments by qualified therapists.


In addition, since people with autism spectrum disorders are usually isolated in Romania, lacking opportunities for leisure and socializing, these centers offer a combination of specific therapeutic programs and an educational program focused on developing life skills, which increases the capacity of their beneficiaries for learning and bonding while reducing the severity and frequency of unwanted behaviors.


Staff and volunteers organize fun and entertainment activities for their beneficiaries, activities that take place in the Day Center, and in the real world, outside therapy hours, focusing on strengthening the skills acquired through excursions, trips at the equestrian center, at city playgrounds, to the zoo, bike rides, etc.
