During the summer of 2001after days of unusually heavy rain fall floodwaters began rising in northern Brasov County, an area located in the Transylvania region of Romania. As many as 150 families were affected and had varying levels of flooding enter their homes. While no families were in fact made homeless from this event, it nonetheless made County disaster officials aware that they were unprepared to provide emergency services for such a large number of disaster victims. In order to be better prepared to provide relief for disaster victims from future emergencies, the community is seeking Partnership support to conduct a workshop on shelter operations for 30 Civil Protection officials. The workshop will develop the community's capacity to provide aid and comfort to evacuees during times of disaster. Classes on Emergency Management systems from the West will also improve the qualifications and abilities of these disaster officials. In addition, the capacity building workshop will bring together local political leaders, emergency first responder and the Romanian Red Cross as well, with over half of attendees coming from the Brasov County Inspectorate of Civil Protection. Immediate effects from the training are measurable in terms of increasing organizational capacity to conduct shelter operations. Ensuring this capacity is carried forward into the future will require support and dedication of local political leaders. Acquiring their support is critical to future training events occurring and maintaining the ability of local officials to provide assistance to disaster evacuees. By integrating this training between both the responder and policy groups, future corroborations can lead to developing additional responder capacity as well.
Education is an important part of having a productive community with an acceptable standard of living. Beginning at an early age and extending into adulthood, formal education teaches basic life skills such as, reading, writing, and counting. In basic life skills continuation, it teaches advanced skills such as the scientific method and formal debate. It is learning at an early-age that a community in Fiji has realized needs more focus and attention. The community has implemented preliminary education in the form of a kindergarten for the past seven years. However, they lack a proper structure to allow consistent education. The construction of this building was set forth as a major goal at the end of 2008. Presently, the kindergarten meets in the school hall where it is often prevented from gathering due to primary school precedence, group meetings, and school functions that have precedent.
 
 
 
The first objective of this project is to construct a building for the kindergarten, providing a consistent daily meeting place for class. The second objective is to teach unemployed village youth basic carpentry skills and teach those with basic skills more advanced techniques. The third objective is to increase community participation in education goals and planning. The community contribution to this project includes the initiation and planning of the school. Material contribution will be sand and gravel for the concrete production and food for daily lunch. All labor will be supplied by villagers of the community, including carpenters, plumbers, and laborers.
