This expedition to Romania will allow you to discover the beauty of the country and the friendliness of its people. At the same time, you will get an insight into the issues facing many of the vulnerable and unwanted children with whom we work, and have a chance to contribute to their support and development.
We must warn you that after getting attached to some amazing kids you may find it very difficult to leave.
Spend your weekends discovering one of Europe’s most beautiful landscapes as you are flanked by the Carpathian Mountains in rural Transylvania. You are also within an easy distance of large tourist cities like Brasov – which is a great city to explore over a weekend or two! There are a range of local festivals over the summer months and our in-country team are happy to point you in the right direction.
Your group will fly out together and be picked up from Tirgu Mures airport from where you will be taken to your accommodation. When you arrive at your accommodation you can relax and settle in and then there will be enough time for a lovely welcome dinner together!
After an induction and orientation, your group will be assigned tasks, split between renovation work and teaching/playing with the children. The aim of the project is to bring some fun to the childrens summer holidays and to act as valued adults and mentors. The renovation of their care homes also helps to improve their standard of living.
Weekends are free to explore and travel independently as desired, with opportunities to go hiking, boating, visit hot springs, trips to Brasov etc. Our overseas teams are exceptional at weekend trips and this truly is a unique opportunity to visit an amazing country that surprises just about everyone!
On the penultimate day you will be driven back to the city for a night in a hotel ready for your early morning flight. Dinner will be included at a local restaurant for you to say final goodbyes to our local team and the new friends you have made.
Transfer from your hotel to the airport in plenty of time for early morning return flight. Expedition ends – make sure you have taken lots of photos!
