The “Filantropia Timisoara” Foundation (FTF) was founded in January 2006, under the patronage of the Metropolitanate of Banat. It is a Christian foundation for community development and charity, which creates social, charitable, cultural, educational and civic programs.
The foundation works with the blessing of His Eminence Metropolitan and Archbishop Nicolae Corneanu and with the care of His Grace Vicar Bishop Paisie Lugojanul.
We mention some of the fields in which the organization is present: social welfare and medical assistance and community development, health care, education and interdisciplinary research, culture, organizational development, youth, environmental. Through its projects, carried out last year, the Foundation focused towards the victims of human trafficking, the Seniors, families and persons in social risk situations, people with disabilities, young adults coming from the child protection system, people affected by diseases that affect their social and professional life (HIV / AIDS, cancer etc.).
FTF is one of the partners and beneficiaries of the SOCIAL project – Strategy for employment and qualification through learning and freedom activities. At the end of the project, the organization will become the administrator of one of the bakery factories created in the project, which will offer a chance to social reintegration of the former prisoners by hiring them in the factory.
