Veritas Foundation Sighișoara

We want to make a positive difference in the community

Our story


In 1995, Dorothy Tarrant founded the Romanian Studies Program (RSP) in Sighisoara, giving American students the opportunity to practice in Romania and work with disadvantaged people in the community, finding Christians to help them provide a safe place for child beggars and abandoned children at the municipal hospital, later laying the legal foundations for the NGO that would become the Veritas Sighisoara Foundation


In 2001, Veritas had two buildings: the Family Center and Casa de pe Stâncă, which offer beneficiaries a safe place. In 2006, it obtained accreditation for social assistance programs for multiple categories of beneficiaries.


Petronia Popa successfully led the Veritas Foundation, bringing about important changes by purchasing a new family center and securing public funds for children's programs. The leadership team and the Advisory Board support the continuation of Veritas' mission to help disadvantaged people and improve the community of Sighisoara. In the future, it is desired to develop more programs to help victims of domestic violence, people with disabilities and the elderly, as well as support for the placement of young people and the unemployed in the field of work.


In 2017, the Veritas Foundation received a license for the Day Center for Children and Youth, and in 2017 it obtained a European grant for medical and social services. In September 2019, the preschool program was temporarily closed, and in March 2020, the programs were temporarily closed due to the pandemic. In 2021, work on the top floor of the Veritas Family Center building was completed and the English Camp was held in the new space in late June and early July. The Kids Club, the Seniors Club and the Canteen have been relicensed.
