True success results from effective partnership. Being administrated by The Zoe’s Publishing Foundation, advised by Regent University faculty in the United States, supported by notable universities in Romania, and with the insight and contributions of other individual experts, the 9 Months In Romania project is rooted in and guided by effective partnership.
Graduate level research will be conducted to assess how and why so many women are being ensnared by the deceptive webcam studios. It will also determine how NGO’s and government agencies alike can help reverse the trend. This research will be useful in nations where human trafficking and sexual exploitation are a problem.
The 9 Months In Romania Project is being organized and completed by Jared A. Snyder, a Graduate student in the United States. It is being conducted in partnership with his NGO, The Zoe’s Publishing Foundation, and a team of academic and professional experts located in Romania and the United States. Jared is a Master of Divinity student at Regent University (Virginia Beach, VA, United States). The focus of his degree is Marketplace Ministry (ministry in business), because he has a particular interest in charitable work and enterprises. Having a lot of personal experience with homelessness, poverty, and hunger, Jared is passionate about social and human rights issues, especially those that affect children and teenagers. To help establish trust and credibility, enrollment certificates, certified by the Registrar’s Office at Regent University, are being routinely uploaded to this site. These certificates validate Jared’s enrollment at the university.
A large portion of the the funds raised in this campaign will be spent in the United States, before Jared even departs for Romania. The money will be used for administrative matters and the initial stages of the research programming that he will utilize in Romania. In addition, various members of the 9 Months In Romania team (most of whom are Romanians residing within Romania) need to receive some compensation for their time and talents, which they are utilizing to assist with the development of various aspects of the project. There may also be certain legal fees associated with getting any licensing, registrations, or other official paperwork required by the Romanian government to conduct this research project in Romania. Any remaining funds will help cover Jared’s living expenses in Romania, so that he can focus completely on his research without having to additionally worry about earning an income while he is there.
This particular project will run for a period of 9 months. It was laid out that way to coincide with a fellowship program that Jared has applied to. This way, even if he is not selected for the fellowship program, he can still move forward with this project with little to no additional planning needed. It should also be noted that this project is only the start of what will become regular work in Romania for Jared and The Zoe’s Publishing Foundation.
