The projects within Smiles 300 Grow Club are overseen by our Director of Operations Maria Hava.

Maria is our longest serving employee in Smiles and has been involved with the work and community in Tileagd since she joined in 2003. At one point Tileagd was Smiles biggest and most demanding project and always has a challenging dimension due to the cultural and historical issues of the Gypsy Community in Tileagd.

Tileagd Community Support Project
is managed by Maria with the assistance of Community Leader Guiry Rostas. The nature of the Gypsy Community is to be a little transient, with families often moving around but ultimately come back to home base in Tileagd. This community of largely uneducated adults means work is limited as well as coping with the prejudice against them as people or their culture. There are daily needs, some very serious, within the Community which present continuous difficult challenges to Maria and Guiry.

Tileagd Craft Project
is overseen and managed by Maria with assistance from Meda Rostas. The objective is simply to provide a means for uneducated women to provide some tangible support for their family needs. The women are encouraged to make Craft Items that can be sold with all the proceeds going to the women for food and family needs.

MORE INFORMATION

SUPPORT NOW


Tileagd Educational Project is one of the longest serving projects within Smiles and first established as a need in 2001. Following the Smiles Founder & CEO meeting a boy begging in the City of Oradea who was traced back to Tileagd, it was agreed with the community to establish a School to help educate the children who at the time, did not attend any type of school elsewhere.

The first School was opened in 2003 followed by a Nursery the following year. In 2006 a much larger school and kindergarten was facilitated in the newly built Smiles Complex along with a Gymnasium, Medical Centre and Church that was opened in 2008. Since 2012, Smiles has partnered with the Romanian State to better integrate the Gypsy Community students with the national system and the State School. Sometimes delicate and challenging issues have to be faced but the significant improvement of an educated community can be seen clearly by those who visit.
