Asociația Culturală TGP - Talent, Generozitate, Pasiune
What started in 2005 with a weekend among friends singing gospel music has brought together hundreds of amateurs sharing an ever increasing passion: music as a catalyst for change and social inclusion. Our choristers are pupils, students and retirees, doctors and teachers, laborers and housewives.
There are no auditions, no preselections, no fees. Everyone is welcome. Many have never played before. And as we are not a permanent group, but we are launching an enrollment call for each project, we always manage to turn a diverse group of 80-120 people into a community.
We believe that diversity is a power, and we try to bring this idea to the edges as well as in the midst of society.

Whether we are talking about going to work, school, shopping, meeting with friends, and enjoying walks through the city or the surrounding area - the bicycle is by far the most appreciated and used alternative means of transport worldwide.
We believe that protecting the environment is vital to a harmonious life, but we also see the more pragmatic side of things, so we take into account the speed, cost and comfort of an efficient means of transport for personal use but also for the whole community.
Verde pentru Biciclete is a call for action, it’s a state of mind.
Ceva de Spus
Ceva de Spus Association is the only self-representation organization in Romania that has members (including leadership) with physical and intellectual disabilities. The Association is made up exclusively of people with disabilities and has the following three main objectives:
1. Society accessibility, which not only means ramps and elevators, but also helpful elements for the blind or the deaf, easily understandable / readable information for people with intellectual disabilities, etc.
2. De-institutionalization and promotion of community life. Currently, 18,000 people with intellectual disabilities live in Romania in inhuman conditions, abused in state residential institutions where they have no right to decide on any aspect of their life. We want these people to live in the community, to be useful to the community and to have a decent life.
3. Community awareness both on the difficulties faced by people with disabilities and on the skills they have. We want a society where people with disabilities are not looked at mercilessly but as citizens with equal rights.
