Headed for RO
What is a Viata? In Romanian, viata means "life" and this is the name given to the annual summer adventure camp established by the New Horizons Foundation upon their arrival in Romania in 1999.
For those of us headed to this wonderful Eastern European country for the next three weeks, I hope that we experience some of this "viata" as a group in our interaction with our Romanian hosts, with each other, and with our guest guides and speakers.
For our first several days, we will be in the capital city Bucharest, learning from local experts about their work with the development of social capital among youth and others in this setting.
