Anul 2022 a fost unul plin de emotii, bucurii, proiecte si exemple de solidaritate pentru cei de langa noi si intre membrii Fundatiei The Open Network for Community Development.

Inceputul de an a fost prolific pentru Fundatia noastra. Am inceput anul cu startul proiectului „A Better LifE – ABLE”, un proiect drag si cu multe resurse pentru OLF-urile noastre, proiect cofinantat prin Programul Erasmus+ al Uniunii Europene. Tot in ianuarie, am inceput etapa de selectie a scolilor si cadrelor didactice in cadrul proiectului „SOS Fire in scoli”, proiect implementat cu sprijinul Ambasadei Regatului Belgiei in Romania.

De la izbucnirea razboiului din Ucraina pe 24 februarie 2022, milioane de oameni au fugit de aceasta oroare. De asemenea, Romania a primit mii de refugiati. Vesti despre actiunile membrilor nostri au ajuns si in Belgia, cum ar fi campaniile de colectare spontana, oferirea de adapost, asigurarea meselor si ingrijirea bunastarii copiilor. Deoarece aceste actiuni au necesitat resurse, ADR-Vlaanderen a derulat o campanie de strangere de fonduri pentru a ajuta organizatiile noastre membre in munca de ajutorare a refugiatilor ucraineni.

Pe masura ce ne-am apropiat de finalizarea proiectului „SOS Fire! (SOS Foc!) Curs de formare europeana pentru elevi in domeniul prevenirii si a oferirii de prim ajutor prin implicarea civica”, proiect cofinantat prin Programul Erasmus+ al Uniunii Europene, Actiunea cheie 2, K202 – Parteneriate strategice pentru educatia scolara, am organizat 4 evenimente multiplicatoare programate in proiect.

Luna martie a venit si cu participarea la Forumul Cooperarii Descentralizate Belgia-Romania. Colegiul Universitar Thomas More din Geel (Belgia) a gazdui aceasta a 8-a editie intre 23 si 26 martie.

In cadrul proiectului „OPPORTUNITIES – Crises as Opportunities: towards a Level Telling Field on Migration and a New Narrative of Successful Integration”, am inceput sa realizam o analiza a situatiei cetatenilor din Republica Moldova care au migrat in ultimii ani in Romania.

La finalul lunii martie, familia coordonatorilor OLF si OLB Poienita au fost greu incercati de un incendiu devastator care le-a ars acasa. Si de aceasta data, ne-ati demonstrat ca „Sa fii OM, e lucru mare” si ca suntem o Retea unita, care la nevoie sare in ajutorul celor aflati in dificultate. Multumim si cu aceasta ocazie celor care cu gandul si/sau cu fapta au fost alaturi de membrii si prietenii nostri din Poienita.

In aprilie, am anuntat inceperea unui alt proiect minunat, „FOWARD: Fashion, Crafts and Design for Women Empowerment”, proiect de asemenea cofinantat prin Programul Erasmus+ al Uniunii Europene.

Pe 30 iulie, ne-am reintalnit plini de emotie la aniversarea celor 10 ani de activitate ai Fundatiei noastre. Ne-au fost alaturi in Iasi (fizic sau prin mesaje video trimise) ambasadori, membri, colaboratori si oameni dragi. A fost o intalnire de suflet, plina de emotii, in care am impartasit experiente si sentimente acumulate pe parcursul acestor ani.

Pe parcursul celor 12 luni ale acestui an, am realizat zeci de activitati, intalniri online si fata in fata si ne-am bucurat de fiecare noua oportunitate care ne-a oglindit sufletele.

Acum, la sfarsit de an, dorim sa va multumim pentru tot ceea ce faceti pentru comunitatile din Romania si Belgia, pentru energia si timpul pe care le daruiti cu atat de multa bucurie, si pentru deschiderea pe care o aveti la propunerile noastre pentru activitatile pe care dorim sa le desfasuram impreuna cu dumneavoastra.

Va dorim ca in fiecare zi, din zilele care au mai ramas din acest an si in tot anul 2023 – sa aveti licar vesnic de speranta si reinoire pentru propria fiinta si sa aveti alaturi oameni dragi spre care sa pasiti sau cu care sa „tihniti”.

Cu imensa recunoastere si recunostinta,
Echipa Fundatiei The Open Network for Community Development

The year 2022 was full of emotions, joys, projects and examples of solidarity for those around us and among the members of The Open Network for Community Development Foundation.

The beginning of the year was prolific for our Foundation. We started the year with the start of the „A Better LifE – ABLE” project, a dear project with many resources for our OLFs, a project co-financed by the Erasmus+ Program of the European Union. Also in January, we started the stage of selection of schools and teaching staff within the „SOS Fire in schools” project, a project implemented with the support of the Embassy of the Kingdom of Belgium in Romania.

Since the outbreak of war in Ukraine on February 24, 2022, millions of people have fled this horror. Also, Romania received thousands of refugees. News about the actions of our members reached Belgium as well, such as spontaneous collection campaigns, providing shelter, providing meals and taking care of children’s well-being. Since these actions required resources, ADR-Vlaanderen ran a fundraising campaign to help our member organizations in the work of helping Ukrainian refugees.

As we approached the completion of the project „SOS Fire! European Training Course for school pupils on fire prevention and first aids through civic engagement”, a project co-financed by the Erasmus+ Program of the European Union, Key Action 2, K202 – Strategic partnerships for school education, we organized 4 multiplier events programmed in the project.

The month of March also came with the participation in the Forum Belgium – Romania on Decentralized Cooperation. The Thomas More University College in Geel (Belgium) hosted this 8th edition between March 23 and 26.

As part of the „OPPORTUNITIES – Crises as Opportunities: towards a Level Telling Field on Migration and a New Narrative of Successful Integration” project, we started to analyze the situation of citizens from the Republic of Moldova who migrated to Romania in recent years.

At the end of March, the family of the coordinators of OLF and OLB Poienita were hard hit by a devastating fire that burned their home. And this time, you have shown us that „Being HUMAN is a big thing” and that we are a united Network, which when needed jumps to the aid of those in difficulty. We also thank on this occasion those who, in thought and/or deed, were with our members and friends from Poienita.

In April, we announced the start of another wonderful project, „FOWARD: Fashion, Crafts and Design for Women Empowerment”, a project also co-financed by the Erasmus+ Program of the European Union.

On July 30, we met again full of emotion at the anniversary of our Foundation’s 10 years of activity. Ambassadors, members, collaborators and dear people were with us in Iasi (physically or through video messages sent). It was a meeting of the soul, full of emotions, in which we shared experiences and feelings accumulated during these years.

During the 12 months of this year, we carried out dozens of activities, online and face-to-face meetings and enjoyed each new opportunity that mirrored our souls.

Now, at the end of the year, we want to thank you for everything you do for the communities in Romania and Belgium, for the energy and time you give with so much joy, and for the openness you have to our proposals for the activities on which we want to develop together with you.

We wish you that every day, from the days that are left of this year and throughout 2023, you will have an eternal glimmer of hope and renewal for your own being and have dear people to step towards or to “rest” with.

With immense gratitude and appreciation,
The team of The Open Network for Community Development Foundation

    Anul 2022 a fost unul plin de emotii, bucurii si exemple de solidaritate intre membrii Fundatiei The Open Network for Community Development. De-a lungul anului, Fundatia si-a dovedit determinarea de a imbunatati campurile de educatie, bunastarea familiilor si protectia mediului. Proiectele sunt un exemplu puternic al modului in care ne-am asumat responsabilitatea sociala si prin care am aratat grija pentru semenii nostri.
