Friends about the Foundation:
Michael Guest - former Ambassador of the United States in Romania
"Laszlo and his team all bring so much enthusiasm to their work. They have such a positive sense of "mission" -- that they are going to be agents of change in a country that faces many environmental challenges. And they are making a real difference. There are many other non-governmental organizations that are enthusiastic about their work, but none more so than the Environmental Partnership."
Gina Ștefan - journalist, Agerpress
"The Environmental Partnership Foundation had a pioneering role in the Romanian environmental protection. During
the past ten years it has been following up and reacting on the different environment damaging activities in Romania. The conservationists from every part of the country got to know the Foundation as being a trustworthy partner."
