Under the motto “Together we can more”, Romanian Academic Society of Behavioral Sciences intends to get involved in projects of social interest, aimed at improving the lives of the disadvantaged, especially children who need help.
In the past, the society was involved in two types of projects:
- Social project – the construction of social center “Mana Cereasca” (“Godsend from Lord”), Lada Parish, Teleorman County;
- Medical project – Project “Smile of Child”.
Help for the social center “Mana Cerească”

- EDUCATIONAL CAMPS FOR DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN
Educational projects in schools:
- Combating the violence in schools through sport
- Combating the phenomenon of bullying
Starting from the society motto “Together we can more”, since June we want to mark “The day against violence on children” through educational events in a high school from Bucharest, in which to invite people from various fields of sport to speak to students, teachers and parents about the importance of sport in schools. We believe that through sport, children especially adolescents can unload their energy, their violent attacks and to gain confidence in themselves. We will also try to launch a study that will have as target the troubled adolescents and their relation with physical activity and sport. We are trying to demonstrate that nervousness or aggression of children can be educated and redirected in a constructive manner through sport. For example, a group of students will follow free courses of martial arts for a year and we will see if there were behavioral changes and if the school results will become better.
