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.

Success Stories

Our 2018 fundraising campaign raised over $4,300! These funds are helping to build a playground, expand a church hall, and renovate a community meeting space – places where people come together to play, share, celebrate and strengthen village life.

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.
