More than 25 years after the fall of communism, villagers in Transylvania today rely on the volunteer tradition of kaláka to rebuild and sustain their communities. If you’re wondering: “what’s a kaláka?” take a minute to watch our video: Voices of Kaláka: Strengthening Communities in Transylvania.

Why Transylvania?


The thread that began centuries ago still ties us to Transylvania. We share a passion for tradition, sustainability, and religious tolerance. We share a belief in the power of kaláka–working together to create change. And many of us share a faith history with Unitarians who live in these villages today.
