08 Dec Winter Bazaar
Continuing our service learning project aimed at developing the school and community of Baisoara, on the 8th of December, starting from 4PM … students joined us at Iulius Mall at the Winter Bazaar! They were selling toys and books in order to raise funds for the ‘Mircea Luca’ School in Baisoara, Cluj county.
Prior to this event, we organized Christmas decorations workshops at TC on 6.12.2017 for upper primary students; we also invited parents and grandparents, in order to create a traditional family atmosphere. The products were donated to be sold at the Bazaar.
- We wanted to contribute to the sustainable development of the school and community of Baisoara, a small village and mountain resort near Cluj-Napoca. This project is now carried out at a much larger level, we have collaborated with the school in Baisoara though media workshops, visits and our “Rethinking Leadership” Round Square conference. Most importantly, we direct all our service activities in Transylvania College to raise money for various needs, projects or wishes that will help the students there. One of these service activities is the Winter Bazaar. More specifically, we will use the money raised on the 8th of December to buy books and create a much-needed library in “Mircea Luca” school from Baisoara. (Ruxandra, student Year 13)
The funds raised in this event (2500 ron = about 600 euro) were used to buy books – a list agreed with the team from Baisoara and with a bookshop. The books were donated during their visit to TC in December.
