On the 15th May 2016 friends of the Aura Ion Foundation will be taking part in the Great Bristol 10k raising much needed funds for Project “Vision In A Bag”.“VISION IN A BAG” is a volunteer led project that reaches out to the “forgotten, poorest, or disadvantaged children in Romania this new School year by. 

The Aura Ion Foundation provide fully equipped school rucksacks, Each will be filled with high quality stationery, learning resources that will enable a child to write, draw, colour & calculate, so they can express themselves and above all learn. We also hope to add some additional treats.

In low-income areas of Romania, school supplies, including pens & paper are a luxury. Most of the young children in these areas are presented with a small bag of extremely limited, mismatched school supplies if at all. 

Kids deserve better than that. They deserve to have access to the school supplies needed to learn. They should be surrounded by good books, convenient supplies, and the materials necessary to conduct projects and experiments.Students who aren’t given the necessary school supplies (such as an up-to-date math book, a working calculator, and plenty of paper) can become frustrated and have a difficult time in class. 

Readily available school supplies let students and teachers focus on what’s really important: learning.“Vision In A Bag” has the power to transform a child’s life – the very Bag you help fund could help create a future doctor, politician, humanitarian, or even your future colleague.

Please support Mihaela Radu, Mari Ciuca, Geo Popa, Pete Knight & Mihaeala Ungureanu fundraising to deliver an amazing amount of fully equiped school bags & smiles this September!
