We attended the NGO Fair today in Targu Mures. Even though it was a rainy day, there were 34 NGOs participating in the city center. I thought it was a great chance for the NGOs to display their work with the community. Above and below photos are from the walk during the Fair.
Our team met and spoke with several NGOs to not only gain an understanding of their missions and but also to acquire information about the Women Academy project.
For more info on the fair, you can check out Divers’ website. Here’s an excerpt:
The NGO Resource Center in Mures County provides information, counseling and advocacy for NGO’s and organizes annually the NGO Fair “Together for the community (in 2014 it will be the XIIth NGO Fair between 10-15 May”).The NGO Center works to create a professional network among NGO’s from Mures County, and facilitates the access of NGO’s from the county to national and international level networks. The NGO fair is one of the most important and by far the most visible, events organized by an NGO in our County. It is devised to be a meeting point where various organizations from various fields can meet and interact, present themselves and their yearly activities.
