My personal mission is to create ecological spaces for the growth of meaningful and impact interventions for professionals, clients, organizations active in the socio-medical and educational fields. by increasing the capacity of at least 20% of social workers to reduce the financial fragility of beneficiaries, especially those who are at the limit of subsistence living, increasing their capacity to become financially resilient, developing mindsets focused on finding solutions to combat poverty and ensure a healthy lifestyle conducive to the harmonious growth of children. The more the burden of financial resources disappears, the more the beneficiaries of social services make room in their lives for the idea of well-being and the prospect of a decent life, which, as we have observed so far, leads them to see children's education as an essential condition of a life lived in long-term well-being, ensuring balance between the social, medical, educational, personal and financial domains of each individual's life. 70% of the beneficiaries of financial education programs are women, they acutely feel the need for financial autonomy. In the next 10 years, we aim to reach 10% of the Romanian population through our financial education programs through which we aim to increase or diversify sources of income, a sustainable degree of indebtedness and effective debt management, developing the capacity for budget planning and balancing income and spending, reducing compulsive spending, developing the skills of a responsible consumer with respect to our resources. At this moment we are developing an intervention aimed at energy poverty.
