The mission of the Regina Maria Social Innovation Foundation is to help people in need through sustainable projects and programs in the fields of health and education, keeping the balance between the material and the spiritual part. Since 2010, the Regina Maria Social Innovation Foundation offers medical services to persons belonging to vulnerable groups, in precarious material and housing situations. There are people who are unable to access medical services and be treated due to lack of income and health insurance. The Regina Maria Social Innovation Foundation coordinates 2 social medicine facilities that have offered over time over 60,000 free or moderate medical consultations and investigations to a number of approximately 18,000 people who had no other treatment solution for complex health problems. Baba Novac Social Polyclinic was established in 2010 in response to the needs of socially marginalized people, without income and without medical insurance. Their social situation limits their access to primary care services, encourages the occurrence of chronic diseases and social exclusion. The educational projects of the Foundation (3 Educational Centers: in Baneasa, Clinceni and Corbeanca) aim at developing the abilities of children from disadvantaged backgrounds and offer guidance, assistance and opportunities for community involvement. Over 70% of them come from disadvantaged backgrounds with a high risk of dropping out of school.

eLiberare is a Romanian organisation focused on preventing human trafficking & sexual exploitation. Our mission is to build a social movement against human trafficking. Our main goal is to equip people to prevent human trafficking in their own communities. Our priorities are five-fold: 1. PREVENTION EDUCATION We decrease the risks of trafficking by making people aware of the issues and empowering them to prevent trafficking in their own communities. We do not only target vulnerabilities, but also seek to spark peer-to-peer prevention initiatives in schools and at community level. 2. CAPACITY BUILDING We resource and equip people through specialized training sessions, such as seminars for social workers, school teachers, police officers, business owners, church leaders and others. Our approach not only targets first-responders, but also non-traditional actors who are leaders within their communities and know the situation firsthand. 3. EXTERNAL ASSISTANCE We come alongside state and private shelters and transition homes that help restore and reintegrate victims and survivors of human trafficking into healthy communities. Whether it's targeted donations or gifts, or mentoring programs that result in survivor-lead resources, our team invests in generously giving back to those who drive our work. 4. STRATEGIC ADVOCACY We create opportunities which bring people together from different sectors of society like businesses, non-profits, governments, schools, churches, arts and media in order to facilitate a multidisciplinary approach to address human trafficking. Our goal is to ensure better legislation that protects victims and counters the culture of impunity, nationally, at a EU-level and globally. 5. AWARENESS EVENTS We proactively go towards those vulnerable and those prone to using services of trafficked individuals in order to inform them about the phenomenon. Our main goal here is to bring the topic into the mainstream, in a respectful and constructive way. To reach this objective, we create online and offline events in order to reach as many people as possible.
