“This is just another step in a long relationship that Cluj has had with Millard’s ministries. Our history is a long one. … And I think we have a very bright future.”David Snell, Fuller Center President
The new NGO will work from its office in Cluj, Transylvania, but construction work will focus in Jucu de Sus village, in a partnership with local NGO “PRIMA DATĂ ACASĂ”. The multi-lot project to be jointly designed and built by the two organizations will include dozens of simple & affordable homes, as well as a community garden, orchard and a playground for children.
“I’m very grateful once again to be part of a team that is motivated both by the mission and also by something that’s a big belief of mine — that what we do for others is what we do for ourselves. For me, I think the key word for today is gratitude — and I think the key word for tomorrow is work”Andrei Aroneț, Executive Director & Founding Member
