Shadows of a Revolution is an ongoing 15 year project of the youth living on the streets in Romania. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the fall of Çeausescu’s regime in 1989. The project follows the socio-economic changes that affect the youth of Romania and how they are coping with a systemic problem that few in the country know how to address.
Ninety-percent of the young adults who live on the streets use drugs and substances they are addicted to and have no means of breaking free of the constraints of this way of life. In addition, they are addicted to a certain way of life on the street that has caused a serious distortion of reality. They are in need of services that can address the root causes of their illnesses while providing them structure and a foundation for growth.
