The Association Center of Studies and Programs for Social Services Development – ASCENDENT (The ASCENDENT Association) is a non-governmental and non profit organization founded in 2000. In 2002, the ASCENDENT Association opened its first Day Center for school children located in 1 Decembrie, Ilfov. A second Day Center was opened in 2007 in the Copaceni, Ilfov area. The third ASCENDENT Educational Center was released in February 2009, in Jilava, Ilfov.
The three educational centers work after a similar methodology based on the concept of learning by playing.
In 2009, we developed “The Sunday School” project which grants scholarships to students. The project has been implemented in our three Day Centers from Bucharest and Ilfov County and aims at providing support to Middle School and High School students having good school performances, but a poor social situation.
Our mission is to develop a social services system oriented towards preventing and overcoming crisis situations.
The ASCENDENT Association is a central provider of social services (in Ilfov County and the surrounding areas) and our purpose is to provide support to the public system and to become involved directly in the lives of the communities of our beneficiaries.
• Self-determination of the assisted individuals (The aim of our projects is to increase the autonomy of these individuals and to avoid social services dependency)
• To respect the dignity of the assisted individuals (this is a necessary condition for a successful social reintegration project)
• To value the persons which we assist (a necessary condition for personal change)
• Pronounced community character (the ultimate beneficiary of our projects must be the community)
• Professionalism and competence (the employees and volunteers of the association will be involved only in those activities for which they are best qualified and competent)
The ASCENDENT Association is recognized by the Accreditation Commission for Social Services Providers (Ministry of Labor, Family and Social Protection). We offer educational, socialization and counseling activities for school children.
