Heifer International approved the first project in Romania in 1992. The first Heifer office opened in 1997 in Cluj, northwestern Romania. 

 

Today, Heifer Romania has a modern, spacious office in Cluj. Heifer Romania has grown to become one of the most successful Heifer programs in the world, having under its supervision 67 projects in 3 countries (Romania, Moldova and Bulgaria).

 

New projects are either in the process of approval or to be opened in the near future. The diversity of our projects includes beneficiaries of different ethnic and cultural backgrounds, together with a large variety of livestock: cows, goats, sheep, pigs, horses, rabbits, poultry, bees and fish. Besides livestock projects, agro tourism, micro credit, micro enterprise, reforestation and  artificial insemination projects have contributed to addressing various needs in the Heifer-assisted rural communities.
