Social assistants from Vaslui visiting the NGOs from Iasi

On the 24th of June, social assistants from Vaslui communes visited the NGOs from Iasi and Negresti which are partners on the project “Partnership for inclusion!”. This was a good occasion to get information on their projects and activities and to find new ways of professional collaboration. This is the second study visit organized on this project, after the visit which took place on the 18th of June 2015, when the social assistants from the communes of Iasi county had the occasion to see the models of assistance of Bethany Foundation for Social Services, Alternative Sociale Association and Alaturi de Voi Romania Foundation. This time, in Vaslui, the social assistants visited the headquarters of World Vision Organization and received information on the programs developed by the foundation. 9 members of World Vision Organization were present at the meeting, answered punctually to the participants’ questions and talked about both their direct experience with beneficiaries, but also about the impact of the developed activities and the change they brought in the community. The social assistants present to the event shared aspects regarding their relationship with beneficiaries and with other institutions. After being asked if there are any NGOs operating in their communities, only a participant answered affirmative. The social assistants appreciated the project “Partnership for inclusion!” as a connection for a better collaboration between the public and private institutions. They have also mentioned that there are many needs in the community and very few resources: financial, human etc. In Iasi, the 14 social assistants visited ADV Romania Foundation and received information about the services of the foundation for supporting people with disabilities, including HIV/AIDS, the counselling offer for teenagers and immigrants. Furthermore, they received information on the importance of social economy and sheltered employment for the inclusion of the vulnerable groups and visited Util Deco social enterprise. Mrs. Manuela Nita from Alternative Sociale Association Iasi presented the services that could be accessed by the social assistants for the cases of the community – especially assistance for the migrants’ children and for the children with imprisoned parents.   During the meeting, the specialists mentioned that though this project, the partners committed to offer support to special cases, so they can request assistance.
