Our projects are strategic investments within the community that contribute to its long-term growth and local development and provide the services and facilities needed for a good quality of life. We meet our local stakeholders on a regular basis, from local authorities to NGOs, in order to understand their needs, expectations and challenges. By listening to our partners and engaging with them, we make sure that our endeavors meet the needs of each community and help them go further.

Our pillars of contribution and community development are education, environment and health.

In partnership with Daruieste Aripi Association, we connected to the internet and equipped with laptops and video projectors to facilitate quality education and online classes for over children in secondary and high school from 14 schools in rural areas in Constanța County.

In Prahova we invested in the construction of four new playgrounds, in partnership with the City Hall of Ploiesti, thus offering the community and children a landscaped area of 1269 sqm with numerous high-quality play facilities. They are designed to be harmoniously integrated into the urban landscape, being paved with elastic rubber tiles, provided with modern urban furniture, and pleasantly colored playground equipment, all in full compliance with quality and safety standards in force.

“Chess in School” is a project initiated in 2021 in which online chess lessons, visits and open hours or chess competitions were organized for children from Constanța, Prahova and Iași counties. Also, the project supported the development of a chess manual for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd year of study, printed in over 10,000 copies and distributed to children both in urban and rural areas. Educating children through chess has proven long-term results in developing intelligence, improving self-confidence, increasing exam passing rates, and developing civic spirit.

Rominserv also supported the community involvement project proposed by the interns from the internship program, 2021 edition, to arrange an artificial salt mine in Baicoi, Prahova, for the therapy of children with autism. The salt mine, with an area of 35sqm, is equipped with a state-of-the-art halogen generator for dry saline aerosols with proven benefits in the therapy of children with autism spectrum disorders, but also for relieving symptoms of patients with lung, dermatological and psychiatric disorders.
