The purpose of the Charitable Association Alexandra Nanu is: to provide material, financial and counseling support for children and youths from 6 to 19 years old who have difficult family conditions but wish to complete their studies.

We propose to help them during an important period of their education development, at a time when they are dependent on the financial situation of their family or on social support.

Together with you, we want to provide our help to these children and youths, regardless of their social status, religion, or ethnicity.

Each ones capabilities have marked the different stages in the founding of the association but team work is the key word in our activity.

The Charitable Association Alexandra Nanu was formed by a group of people united by a common idea. Being sincere, generous, serious, and full of love were the most important character traits of the person who was Alexandra Nanu.

Fate took her away from us unexpectedly in October 2010, when she was only 26, due to a grave health problem, unknown at that time. She influenced us, her parents and close friends, so strongly that we felt the need to keep her alive in our hearts and souls, continuing to do what she would have done with complete devotion.

This is how The Charitable Association Alexandra Nanu, in short AUAN, a non-governmental, nonprofit, non political association, was formed in November 2011. It became a private Romanian legal entity in January 2012 and operates by following the Romanian legislation regarding associations and foundations.

    "Live a Life That Matters"
    "Ready or not, someday it will all come to an end. There will
    be no more sunrises, no minute, hours or days. All the
    things you collected, whether treasured or forgotten, will
    pass to someone else.
    Your wealth, fame and temporal power will shrived to
    irrelevance. It will not matter what you owned or what you
    were owed.
    Your grudges, resentments, frustrations and jealousies will
    finally disappear. So, too, your hopes, ambitions, plans and
    to-do lists will expire.
    The wins and losses that once seemed so important will fade
    away. It won’t matter where you came from, or on what side
    of the tracks you lived, at the end. It won’t matter whether
    you were beautiful or brilliant. Even your gender and skin
    color will be irrelevant.
    So what will matter? How will the value of your days be
    What will matter is not what you bought, but what you built;
    not what you got, but what you gave.
    What will matter is not your success, but your significance.
    What will matter is not what you learned, but what you taught.
    What will matter is every act of integrity, compassion,
    courage or sacrifice that enriched, empowered or
    encouraged others to emulate your example.
    What will matter is not how many people you knew, but how
    many will feel a lasting loss when you’re gone.
    What will matter is not your memories, but the memories
    that live in those who loved you.
    What will matter is how long you will be remembered, by
    whom and for what.
    Living a life that matters doesn’t happen by accident.
    It’s not a matter of circumstances but of choice.
    Vow to live a life that matters."
