Project Photovoice
In April 2018, we launched the 10-month project "Active Children for a Better Future in Corbasca".
As part of this endeavor, children and adolescents in the Corbasca community, which is supported by our foundation, have the opportunity to detect problems in their community and to suggest solutions to solve  them. This with the help of tutors trained in the "Photovoice" method, but always from the point of view of the young people and within their own initiatives. At the same time the children and adolescents should learn more about possible problems reigning in their community, to judge these from their own point of view and to find, if possible, solutions of how to solve them.
In this project, 45 children from our Children's Day Care Center in Scarişoara, led by our partner organization FSC - Community Support Foundation Bacau, together with 45 pupils from the secondary school of the Corbascian village of Băcioiu will participate in this joint project. They will visually photograph and audibly describe the issues which they have found in their community (hence the name Photovoice), discuss them in their regular meetings, and try to find common solutions to solve them. At the end of the project, they will present their findings and their resulting suggestions to representatives of the local authorities, with request for assistance in solving the identified problems.
The Photovoice project - "Active Children for a Better Future in Corbasca"- is being carried out with the financial support of the Civic Innovation Fund. The corresponding project budget is 60,000 lei (about CHF 15,000), subsidized by the Romanian-American Foundation Enel, Raiffeisen Bank Romania and Ursus Breweries. The project is being carried out by our daughter foundation Mana @ Mana, in collaboration with the local authorities of Corbasca and the Community Support Foundation Bacau.

On the 30th of January 2019 our Photovoice project “Active Children for a Better Future in Corbasca”, implemented by the Foundation Mana@Mana in partnership with the Local Authorities of Corbasca and the Community Support Foundation Bacau (FSC), launched with works of children a photo exhibition under the theme “The Beautiful and not so Beautiful Realities of our Community”. 90 children from the day centre Scărișoara and from the secondary school in the municipality's village of Băcioi, found suggestive images through which they could express their opinions on what could be improved in the municipality of Corbasca, where they live.

For 10 months they were taught how to take meaningful and representative photos. At the end of January, they presented their achievements in front of colleagues, teachers and other members of the community. The best 90 photos were exhibited in the Town Hall of Corbasca, in the presence of 45 local representatives, including the deputy mayor, local councillors, school directors and teachers.

Beyond other messages the photos point out the lack of playgrounds and sports fields or the lack of civilized manners like littering or inappropriate care towards public property, but they also show the beauty of the landscapes in their very own community. The efforts and the results achieved by the children impressed everybody. In consequence some of the photos have been framed and will be permanently exhibited in the meeting room of the Town Hall in memory of a memento of the young generation’s vision.

The project “Active Children for a Better Future in Corbasca” aims to increase the participation and sense of responsibility not only among children, but also between them, adult citizens and public authorities in the community. The project also aims to increase the acceptance towards the Roma children living in the community. The project “Active Children for a Better Future in Corbasca” certainly helped all the involved 90 children to develop civic skills during their 11 months of project activity, which will run out by the end of February 2019.
