Romania Society

Methody has been involved in a project with the charity School Aid Romania from 1990 and each year a group of students and staff from the College go to Romania to visit some of the projects. These include orphanages, an Old Peoples’ home, TB hospital, a school for the deaf and care homes for children with disabilities.

This is a cross-community project and we work closely with St Patrick’s College in Maghera and Ballyclare High School. 

 Aims, Objectives and Policies

School Aid Romania was set up in 1990 with two main aims:

To assist children in need in Romania

To bring together pupils from different schools and different communities in Northern Ireland.
In pursuit of its aims, School Aid Romania's objectives are to contribute to the development of community relations and mutual understanding between young people in Northern Ireland and to secure, by joint ventures, material assistance to relieve poverty and improve the well-being of young people in Romania. The organisation endeavours to undertake its work with children and young people in the full awareness of its responsibilities to them.
