The PONT Group is a Cluj-Napoca based young group, expert in local and regional development. Our non-profit organization is devoted to generate, implement and promote projects with the aim of contributing to the economic and social development of Romania and its regions. Although it initially started as an informal group of young people, who in 2001 launched the first website in Transylvania, which was dedicated to offer information about grants and scholarships in two languages: Romanian and Hungarian - PONT - Granturi.ro; Palyazatok.ro, the organization has acquired a legal personality only in the spring of 2009. The founders of the PONT Group and most of its active members were themselves active members of youth organizations at different levels, such as student organizations and professional organizations in the youth field. Besides implementing its own projects, our team members are constantly offering consultation and training to a large number of youth NGOs in their daily work, from helping to understand the process of accessing non-refundable funds to implementing sustainable and original projects.
Through its activities the PONT Group wishes to contribute to the development of Romanian rural and urban communities and to increase the number of active young people involved in these development processes. The PONT Group considers Romania, a full member of the European Union as having an important role in representing and developing Eastern Europe. Our projects aim to enhance the feeling of appartenance of young people to this region and to Europe, being aware and open to cultural differences and learning of build sustainable and strong networks.http://www.pontconsulting.ro/home.php
