Voices of Kaláka

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.

Kaláka projects have the power to strengthen communities by bringing people together around a common purpose. Volunteers make it happen through cooperation, dedication and hard work; we help make it happen through fundraising. You can feel the spirit of Kaláka in the final reports on our project pages.

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.
