With great pleasure we announce the winners of the
"A FI Good neighbor" community fund!
"AFFInities for a united community" ("AFInități pentru o comunitate unită"), the project submitted by Parada Foundation, and "Day of the neighbors at the little tables of knowledge" ("Ziua vecinilor la măsuțele Cunoașterii"), submitted by the initiative group 4 KIDS, are the two winning projects who will receive a total funding of over RON 70,000 for the implementation of their project ideas.
Through "AFFInities for a united community", Parada Foundation aims to bring together the residents of Carol Park area and the vicinity around several activities whose goal is to stimulate the development of harmonious relationships between individuals from different social classes, by creating communication bridges through art. With Parada Circus, a social circus whose artists are exclusively street children or youngsters, the public space will be animated through circus shows and juggling workshops. At the same time, in order to increase their integration, but also to create empathy and understanding from the local community, discussions will be organized between the artists and the spectators on issues of public perception on street life, misconceptions and equality.
The "Day of the neighbors at the little tables of knowledge" project was submitted by the initiative group 4 KIDS, formed by three neighbors from the same block, determined by a sole will: to do something good in the community where they live. The winning idea is the organization of The Neighbors Day, a day of celebration for the community near Filaret Park and vicinity, that will take place on the last Saturday of May. This day aims to become a tradition, embraced by many other neighborhoods in the city. In order to stimulate and support the community life, the project also aims to organize monthly reunions of the neighbors, especially parents with children, around "The little tables of knowledge", which include four educational tables on different topics, placed near playgrounds. The little tables will target children aged 4 to 9 years old and are destined to stimulate learning and knowledge through play.
Congratulations to everyone who submitted their projects, together we can bring back the community spirit into the city!

Be proud of your neighborhood
This is what we want through our "AFI – Be a Good Neighbor" program, which emerged from the desire to revitalize the urban area and the spirit of community where we are present. Community life must be a concern for any company. This is our vision and over time we have demonstrated that our role goes beyond business boundaries and we have tried to be as close as possible to the people in the communities where we chose to develop our projects.
Through AFI Tech Park, our newest business campus, we wanted to bring the business area closer to the community and meet the growing demands of company employees: a high level of workspace quality and a shorter time
spent in traffic on the way to the office.
