Hope and Homes for Children Romania

About Hope and Homes for Children

Hope and Homes for Children has been working in Romania for 18 years. We focus on transforming the lives of children abandoned in orphanages or at risk of being separated from their families. Through our efforts so far, we have managed to remove over 5,540 children from institutions and move them to loving family environments, as well as to prevent more than 23,500 children from being separated from their families and entering the endless cycle of institutionalisation.

In order to be able to reach our ambitious goal of saving all children from old-type institutions in Romania and giving them happy, normal family lives, all by 2022, we need the support of like-minded people, people who aren’t afraid to take on a challenge for a noble goal. People just like you!

About Team Hope

Team Hope was born out of the desire to extend the fundraising and awareness efforts of Hope and Homes for Children in the community by creating new ways in which people – passionate or beginner athletes, sponsors, partners, volunteers, endorsers – could support the HHC activity dedicated to the most vulnerable children in Romania.

Ever since our first participation at the 2014 Bucharest Marathon, and then at the events in 2015, our dedication to this project made Hope and Homes for Children one of the official NGOs, and earned us the title of Top Supporting NGO twice in a row. At this very moment, Team Hope means:

  • 3 successful events
  • 2 Top Supporting NGO awards
  • 681 runners
  • 159 volunteers
  • dozens of sponsors and partners

The Bucharest Half Marathon on May 14-15, 2016 marks Team Hope’s fourth participation in this event series, and once again we hope to have a big, beautiful, joyful team of runners. Will you join us? Go to and become a Team Hope Hero right now.
