Diakonia second hand sorting center
- protected workplace for disabled adult persons -
Short description

The project:
-        -  a project of a second hand sorting center where in a protected environment 4 or 5 disabled people could work under the supervision of a specialist
-          -in order to be able to raise enough money to pay for their salaries we would need 15 to 20 tons of clothing items per year which would be selected by the persons by size, type, quality and later sold to the second hand shops which are interested.
-          -is to employ disabled adults (adults who are already participating in our art-therapy group and have minor disabilities and would be able to work in this domain) coordinated by one specialist
-        - by employing these adult disabled people we will improve their psycho-social and cognitive skills but also we will be able to encourage their independence (both individual and financial),
-          given the fact that we are talking about disabled adults most of their parents (who are their permanent caregivers) will soon die because of their age and they would become either institutionalized old people or permanently dependent on social welfare, but if they have an income and are relatively independent they will not become a „social burden for the state”

Income management:

-         - the incomes produced by the second hand sorting center will be used in paying the running costs of this second hand center and the salaries of the specialist and disabled people employed here
-       -   the profits (the income that is above the running costs and salaries) will be invested in the Day Care Center for Disabled and Old People
-          -The Day Care Center for Disabled and Old People - is at this moment in building….this means it is not finished yet we still have to create rooms, walls, doors there is some painting to do and we have to introduce the utilities (light, water, toilets, heat) . After all this is done we have to create the rooms and the access to utilities in standard ways approved by law so we can receive Social Accreditation (without which no social service can work here in Romania)
-        - After Social Accreditation of the protected workplace, second hand sorting center can and we hope it will be a permanent source for part of the running or personnel costs of the Day Care Center.

Partners’ involvement:

-          -we would like to have a partner who can provide us with the clothing items we need for the second hand sorting center
-        -  the partners name and logo will be put on all the visible places next to our logo and will be mentioned in all our reports and PR materials

The Promotie tour in Breaza

On 19 September arrived the motor-biker group in our village. It was an event in the village ,everybody was on the street to see them .
 Some  bikers were sleeping by guest families,like in the `90s and some in Hotel Marion in Reghin.
On Saturday morning we have organized a motorbike tour to Turda-Salt mine and back for the kids (14-19 year) .
38 kids were riding on the back of the motorbike,and we were following the group with our kids with the van ....wich of course was not so fun as riding ....but they were to small for it. We were enjoying the smily faces of the people we passed by .We had a great day, nice weather a little rain too.
After we arrived back in Breaza, the kids were waited with warm Pizza and drinks at the local Pizzeria and the bikers were welcomed and served with Kurtoskalacs, a local specialty made by the kids parents for our guest. At the end all the kids have received T-shirts and could keep the helmets  too.Was nice to see that some of them have made friendships and  changed e-mail addresses between them ,just like we in the past.
Thank you for your visit,we have spent a great time together!
