Brutăria de fapte bune ("The Bakery of Good Deeds")
"Brutăria de fapte bune" is a competition aimed at the bank's employees, whereby we intend to promote community involvement and volunteering as effective tools for personal development and solving real social problems, by catalysing several valuable resources: skills, time and colleagues' dedication, and funds provided by the bank.
An example of a winning project is the inauguration of BineBucătăriei - a semi-professional kitchen arranged at the DownCER Association in Cluj, where young people with the Down syndrome learn how to prepare good food and thus become more independent.
BineBucătăria is a project developed by DownCer Association with the aid of BCR volunteers from Cluj. They won a grant of EUR 3,000, which transformed a former storage room into a kitchen, equipped with specialized furniture, ovens, hoods, refrigerator, tables, utensils and dishes. The project was successful because it has a medium and long-term impact, as it brings a real improvement in the lives of the beneficiaries.
