• Global Romania is an initiative by the Romanian United Foundation (RUF) that aims to build a global network of Romanians making positive contributions to the world. It invites Romanians from around the world to join a community focused on uniting the Romanian diaspora and creating a positive impact.

  • Global Romania Ambassadors are vital in networking, community building, and promoting RUF's global campaigns. They are individuals with a strong reputation, energetic, and committed to RUF's mission. Ambassadors work to connect their local communities with the Romanian diaspora and help advance the organization's goals.

  • The Global Romania Ambassador is a prestigious designation identifying diaspora changemakers who contribute to building vibrant Romanian Communities in major cities worldwide. Ambassadors are recognized members of the Global Romania network. While they have certain responsibilities and benefits, they do not act independently but work closely with RUF to achieve common goals.

  • A “Point of Contact” is any “warm connection” to a local community. We define local “communities” as groups of people that live in a relatively compact geographical area, e.g. “Paris Community” or “Amsterdam Community.” Every person in RUF’s network who has a personal, meaningful connection to RUF and is willing to stay in touch and occasionally be contacted by RUF (about projects, campaigns, or simply to stay in touch) can be a “Point of Contact.”

    You can apply to join as a “Point of Contact” for the GlobalRomania Ambassadors Program by following the link on the website. As a “Point of Contact,” we hope you will follow RUF on social media and stay engaged with RUF activities.
