bout Little March
We hearten, preserve and revive our unique Romanian unique heritage. No ifs, no buts. Will you become part of Our Movement?
What Do We Belive In?
We believe Romania has an invaluable treasure in its nature, people, ideas, culture and artworks. Romania deserves to thrive authentically, still in the 21st century.
We believe that only by developing as a civilisation can we provide authentic and endless value to the world, be it economic, cultural, natural or spiritual.
Quick fixes and cheap solutions don’t work. In fact, it is these that brought us to this point.
Just as individuals, nations have to be themselves and to believe in themselves if they want to flourish.
What is Little March?
We are an cultural, educational and environmental charity that stand up for Romanian authenticity.
We raise funds and direct them to the sensible spots of Romanian heritage today: our people and young generations, our nature, our traditions and society, our arts and our ideas.
Our symbol, the 3000 years old little march is a time immemorial symbol related to the first Indo-Europeans. It’s symbolistic encapsulates the timeless duality of brain and heart, reason and kindness – which are our core moral drivers. The tradition is still alive in an area populated by over 30 million people, carrying the message of spring and rebirth every March. Still in 2020.
It’s a startling example of resilience in spite of the passage of time and trends, the Roman Empire and Social Media alike.
How we started?
How We Got Started
Our story – begins in March 2017, when we thought for the first time to bring the martisor to the Romanian community in UK, some over 2000 km away from home. And not only to them, but to the broad international community of the perhaps most diverse city in Europe, that is London.
Receiving a great deal of gratitude, words of encouragement and seeing the emotions our fellow citizens felt when they discovered such a nice surprise in the first day of spring, we decided to start a full scale project that would bring this symbol closer to the Romanian communities and more than that: promote our uniqueness through campaigns and projects aimed at educating the public and making a real impact. As such, Little March was founded as a charity on the 2nd February 2018.
Where We Are Now
After 2 years of existence we managed to impact over 60 vulnerable children in Romania and Moldova, we held two educational talks events for the Romanian community in London, we grew our membership 4 times and we are looking forward into the 20s with intrepidity. Our 2020 Mărțișor event is about to start soon. Stay tuned!
Pressing Issues in Romania
Despite its unparalleled beauty and rich cultural heritage Romania is suffering. It has the highest rates of population leaving the country, illegal logging, and highest rate of functional illiteracy in the EU. Furthermore, we have the lowest scores on people reading, going to museums or artistic performances in the Union — Romania needs action.
Fast, smart and now.
People Impacted So Far
