Assistance, Cooperation, Opportunities, Protection, Equality for Roma and Immigrants
WHAT WE DO
To partner with Roma and Immigrant families through education and advocacy so they can build more independent, sustainable housing conditions in their communities.
The Republic of Moldova is the poorest country in Europe and is the host of a further underserved Roma and Immigrant population. Racism, marginalization, discrimination, bullying and social determinants gravely impact Roma and Immigrants as many are unable to work, attend school or have access to adequate healthcare or housing. We're here to lend a helping hand to change the tide.
At A.C.O.P.E.R.I., we are working towards a world where EVERYONE is COVERED.

Board of Directors
Co-Founder, President Emeritus
ACOPERI is an organization dedicated to Moldova's underserved. After the founders Israel Collier & Charles Edmond visited various countries on a mission to aid humans enduring lives without adequate housing, they recognized that their experience in poverty alleviation had purpose for those in need. Careful observation, study, and planning followed suit, leading to the founding of ACOPERI. After countless trips to the Agenția Serviciu Publice (Public Service Agency) and a series of learning curves, ACOPERI finally budded into a true organization and non-profit. ACOPERI continues to evolve with each new member, partner, and volunteer, leading to small projects that make a difference. Through good times and bad times, we continue to strive towards a world where everyone is COVERED (ACOPERI).
