2008

There was no Phoenix Group Nonprofit yet. We were employed by Globe Aware (Houston, Tx, USA) to coordinate volunteers coming through Globe Aware Romania Program to FAST Charity (Sacele, Bv, ROMANIA). We were responsible for their transportation, accommodation and meals; and for organizing activities like:

     # building homes for Roma people;
     # teaching English to Roma children;
     # helping around at FAST community center;
     # visiting Brasov and surrounding area.

Needless to say, the experience was priceless! By the end of the year, we got confident that we can continue doing charity work on our own, in other poor areas of the region. So, we started off the creation of Phoenix Group Brasov.

THANK YOU, Chelsea, Elizabeth, and Sara, for daring us to follow our dreams!!!
