The Prince of Wales's Foundation Romania (PWFR) was established in 2015 to take forward His Royal Highness's charitable work in Romania. The Foundation develops a number of projects to support the architectural heritage preservation, farming and sustainable development of the country. The Prince of Wales's Foundation Romania is a subsidiary of The Prince of Wales's Charitable Foundation (UK).
What we do
We aim to provide relevant skills to local communities by delivering practical courses. We currently deliver four major programmes: heritage preservation, farming (support for small farmers and producers of artisan food), support for Romania's wounded soldiers and a veggie plots project which helps local people to grow their own food.
Who we are
The Prince of Wales's Foundation Romania is governed by the Board of Trustees appointed by The Prince of Wales. Currently the Board of Trustees is formed of Andrew Wright, Paula Wilson, Count Tibor Kalnoky and Shoshana Stewart. The Executive Director is Romanian born Aura Woodward.
Where we work
The registered office of the charity is at The Prince's House in the UNESCO village of Viscri, Brasov County.
Achievements and Impact
Over the last three years, The Prince of Wales's Foundation Romania has delivered practical courses and programmes which have benefitted hundreds of families and individuals. We work with local communities to meet their needs and focus on building on their skills and knowledge to improve the quality of their lives.
Our Heritage Preservation Programme provides a unique opportunity to learn restoration techniques which would enable people to secure a job in the sector and help with the wider effort of preserving Romania's built environment. We continue to engage with farmers and small producers of high value artisan food to help them find new markets and grow their businesses.
