We are very excited to announce the start of construction for our two community buildings in Eastern Europe, as part of the Enel Cuore Community Empowerment Program. Both projects have been in development for over a year and the launch of construction is an important milestone for everybody, especially our local partners.
In Slovakia, the new community center in Roškovce, will serve the local Roma population and will enable the local NGO “People in Need” to provide a series of programs around health, education and employment to assist the community’s integration into the village and Slovakian society.
In Romania, the project, a new dental clinic, will enable the expansion of the Izvoarele Medical Center and offer the first dental services in the village.
Both projects are scheduled to finish construction by the end of the year. We’ll keep you updated!
In March 2012, Architecture for Humanity initiated a partnership with Enel, Europe’s second-largest utility company and a provider of sustainable energy around the world. The program, facilitated through Enel’s foundation, Enel Cuore Onlus, is designed to build capacity in rural and urban areas affected by considerable poverty and social disadvantage.
