PACT Foundation works with people living in rural areas and small towns from Southern Romania in order to create structures of civil society. Our vision is that a large number of people living in rural and small urban areas should be active locally, to find solutions to the problems of their communities, to directly contribute to their own economic and social development, and to that of the community they belong to. Thus, through the programmes and projects we develop, we identify people with initiative from small communities in the south of Romania and we support them with resources and information in order to develop relevant projects in their communities.
To raise funds and help even more communities next year, we invite you to:
• Rustic Feast. The Crop of Good, on October 9, starting from 7p.m. at Manuc Inn to get lost within the traditional cultural riches offered by the Romanian southern village. Whether you will take delight in traditional dishes, doina rhythms or you will raise a glass to the harmonious sounds of local musicians, the feast will capture you and you won’t even know when you grabbed the hand of the other participants to join the hora.
• As the dress code for the Rustic Feast is something traditional Romanian, we want to make it easier for you to find the right element for the evening. So, on the 21st of September, we invite you to La Şezătoare, a weaving and sawing workshop where you can find the right clothes and accessories for the 9th of October from our friends from Iutta, Atelierul de haine, La Blouse Roumaine and from our communities. You can also bring your children as they can take part in a handmade folk dolls workshops while you find the right combination for the event. You can come whenever you want from 12.00 until 18.00. During the day we will have a series of workshops you can attend, and also time to decide on the right combination. Our hosts are the our friends from Coftale (Stefan Mihăileanu 42). The entrance donation is 50 RON.
