Good Bureau is a broker for social good in Romania.
As one of the poorest countries in the European Union, Romania is still overcoming the devastation of 40+ years of communism. We are losing our most educated to Western Europe at a rate of every one in six. And, nearly half the children in the country face the risk of poverty and social exclusion, making Romania the #1 source country for victims of human trafficking in the EU.
Despite decades of being an overlooked country, Romanian leaders are showing up, eager to bring light back to their country and offer hope to their people. They are trailblazers, change agents, history-makers. They see injustice and are bold enough to do something about it.
Trouble is – helping is hard. Especially here.
At Good Bureau, we help Romanian leaders do more good. First, we find leaders with incredible potential. Then, provide them with funding, network, and support and they become game-changers for their nation.
We have helped fund training and mentorship for 20+ Entrepreneur and Non-Profit leaders in and around Bucharest. From a trafficking survivor rescue shelter, to an organic turkey farm that helps fund programming for at-risk youth, we have been able to fund the growth and support for some incredible programming that helps to stop trafficking before it even begins. Community and economic development are powerful forces for trafficking prevention.
