History



Home visits, mobile help and drum lessons in a small classroom. With these actions we contacted Roma families and many children in 2012 in Nou, Transilvania. Even without a permanent home we found ourselves in abandoned houses, always moved on again. A volunteer from Vorarlberg had the courage to break into a new world with us. We got to know people, we lived together and most of all learned from each other. Today we work in six locations, run social centers, family help, music school, workshops, a student dormitory in the city and a children shelter. Every day we continue our way.
