Project Agape works mainly in two areas of Romania:
The East (Iasi)
The work in Iasi has reached out further into Osoi where recently a huge log playground was installed in a little village called Osoi, just east of Iasi on the Ukraine Moldovan border. The playground stands alongside a new Church and community centre.
Project Agape has worked with Shelter of Care which is a Christian foundation, established by a young Romanian couple, Sorin and Genuta Erhan, together with Elaine Matthes from the United States. Shelter of Care provides support to young people who have spent their childhoods in orphanages or foster homes.
Girls are given a safe home where they can continue to grow and be taught the ordinary skills necessary to live in their Romanian culture.
The Shelter of Care Summer Camp Program provides girls, mainly from Bucium Orphanage in Iasi, with a unique opportunity to attend an annual Christian Camp during the summer holidays. Each year, Shelter of Care camps bring together Romanian, American and British volunteers, and around 20 girls and young women at a peaceful countryside camp, to enjoy sports, crafts, teaching and worship.
The West (Arad)
Project Agape has had the privilege of working with street children and families in Arad in the west of Romania. This is in conjunction with Networks, a Romanian charity headed up by Lee Saville, an Englishman, called by God to work and live in Romania.
NetWorks, founded in 2001, is based in the village of Siria in the county of Arad, Romania, and its aim is to work in community to help to address some of the complex social and economic issues that lead to poverty.
