We are a foundation created and supported by volunteers who want to unite the Romanian community in the Netherlands.
We encourage Romanian talents, and to uphold the Romanian identity. Our aim is to inspire the drive to succeed in the modern Dutch society, just as well as anywhere else in the world. We want to know and help each other.
We have organized and supported so far four projects: Romanian School Amsterdam, Interconnections Online School, Romanian Business Community and The Theater over Borders. Throughout the year we organize and promote various events for the community.
Support our Foundation and activities by becoming a ROMPRO Friend! Our activity is based on the volunteer effort of the Romanians here, but we also need financial support to organize the proposed projects and events.
You can support us from € 1 per month for one person or € 2 per month for a family. One euro per month is not much, but every contribution matters a lot to us!
Netsib Foundation, our parteners, have organized IA day in Deventer on 15 June 2018. Netsib Foundation is involved in the relationship and cooperation between Sibiu…

“The ROMPRO Foundation has managed, in less than a year since it was established, to invigorate in the Romanian community the associative spirit, the feeling of solidarity, and the wish to maintain and pass on to future generations the Romanian national identity.
The Embassy of Romania in the Hague has had the privilege of supporting and promoting the activity of the Foundation ever since its set-up and has joined its most important events.
In turn, the Foundation has been a trustworthy partner of the Embassy in a series of complex projects that were on the agenda of our diplomatic mission.
We believe it’s extremely important that the Foundation’s activity continues, expands, and diversifies. Within its responsibilities, the Embassy of Romania in the Hague will continue to support and promote the activities of the Foundation to the benefit of all Romanians living in the Netherlands.”

„I learned about the Foundation’s activities when it was still being set up. The members made a great impression on me by showing seriousness and inclusivity. The activities were, without exception, very well organized and attended by Romanians, Dutch, and other nationalities alike.
Without a doubt, the Netherlands needs a well-developed Romanian organization, made by Romanians for Romanians – but not only.
On the one hand, there are more and more Dutch people who come into contact with Romanians living in the Netherlands and I think it’s very important that they get to know better some of the aspects of the rich Romanian culture.
On the other hand, it’s important that such a Foundation exists, so that Romanians can celebrate together their traditions, especially because many of the activities organized by ROMPRO offer a platform where the young generation (often of Dutch-Romanian origin) can stay in touch with the traditions of its parents.
I salute the initiative of setting up ROMPRO and I’m glad it proved to be so auspicious from the very beginning.”
Alexandru Iosup – Netherlands’ Teacher of the Year, 2015
“The lack of cohesion in the Romanian diaspora here seems to me to be a major problem for the quality of life of Romanians living in the Netherlands. We need more organization, and particularly better organization, done by Romanians living here and for Romanians living here.
ROMPRO addresses this issue with a combination of enthusiasm and professionalism that works, that inspires. That’s why I see ROMPRO as a successful enterprise that is very much needed by the community.
I’m impressed by how well organized ROMPRO is. I went to several of their events and each time I was pleasantly surprised. I wasn’t expecting such a numerous attendance and even less so such a positive attitude.
I appreciate how ROMPRO stimulates integration and encourages social engagement – everyone should help to the extent they can. I’ve seen the results thus far and this makes me support ROMPRO. Best of luck!”
