ARDR was founded and recognized as a non-profit, non-governmental organization by the Court in Gorj county according to the Romanian law, on October 23rd, 2007. 

ARDR is the fruitful outcome of years of teamwork and personal development in the NGO sector. The agency is developing ideas and pilot projects that have been gradually growing for years now, but that have not had the time to ripen.

ARDR unites a young team with a solid professional background, and is backed up by relevant advisors in all of the areas in which it provides programs.

We benefit from a wide network of local, regional, national and worldwide social organizations that has been built up over many years.

ARDR has active projects and programs that you can find throughout this website. This dynamic and exciting organization is growing from the grassroots right up through the complex modern bureaucracy of the new Romania, and it is an inspiring time to be contributing to the future of this country.
