A call from EDUNET - looking for NGO partner
Friday 8 January 2010

IFHOHYP got a special request from Anca Dudau in Romania to spread this call. Please read the call here below and contact Anca about this.

Dear colleagues,

I wish you all a Happy New Year!

I have a proposal of project for any of the HOH organisations from Europe, member or not of IFHOHYP. We would be interested mainly in a partner from Italy, because many Romanian go to work abroad there, but we are open to other countries too.

My organisation, EDUNET Association, wants to intermediate a Leonardo da Vinci project for 15 Romanian students who want to apply for a grant to the European Commision in order to do an internship for 3 weeks in a hospital and special Center of Recovery for HOH people.

What the NGO partner should do:
  • find a hospital or a Center of Recovery who wants to collaborate with us
  • find accomodation for the students (they will receive some money for the project management)
  • do some intercultural and language preparation with the students (they will also have money per student)
  • mentor the students during their placement.
For more details, please contact me at

A smile for you,
Anca Dudau
