AGAPIS Foundation is a nongovernmental organization from Zalău ( Sălaj County ). The foundation started its activity in 1997, as an organization focused on developing the community from Ileanda village (Sălaj) through projects supported by local initiatives.
From its very beginnings, Agapis has been acting like a link between the community and its development opportunities. Nowadays, Agapis has established itself as one of the most active actors of the local NGO sector, aiming to implement sustainable and integrated development projects for local communities through:
* consulting services and technical assistance in defining and implementing community development strategies
* support small-scale farmers, promote local “home-made” products and create a local brand
* promote the traditional village and the rich cultural and historical heritage from Valea Barcăului region
* promote social inclusion entrepreneurship
* encourage social responsibility and volunteering
One of our key priorities is to raise awareness on the economical benefits small-scale farmers can obtain through responsible tourism, traditional farming or through promoting efficiently their products such as silvoita (plumb jam), cheese and meat products, homemade bread, tea herbs, "palinca" (local alcoholic drink) and honey related products.
Therefore, understanding how important is to develop a community through valuing its local resources, Agapis works in close cooperation with communities from Salaj aiming to improve their living standards, while stimulating a sustainable socio-economic development.
