Building Community and Protecting the Environment: with NGO Startup founder Madalina and Boris

Winemaking has been a part of Romanian culture for centuries, and it is no surprise thatMadalina Bouros have taken up the craft to create a positive social impact in their home country. The couple, both from Romania, are using winemaking tools to bring people together and promote sustainable development in their local community. Madalina Bouros started their winemaking journey by learning the basics of winemaking from local experts.

They then invested in the necessary equipment such as fermentation tanks, presses, barrels, bottles, corkscrews and other tools to get started. With these tools at hand they were able to start producing quality wines that could be sold locally or exported abroad. The couple’s main goal was not only to produce quality wines but also to use their business as a platform for social change.

To achieve this goal they decided to focus on creating jobs for locals who would otherwise struggle to find employment due to lack of education or experience. They also wanted to make sure that all employees were paid fair wages and had access to benefits such as health insurance and vacation days. In addition, Madalina  are committed to using sustainable practices when it comes to winemaking.

This includes using natural fertilizers instead of chemical ones, harvesting grapes by hand instead of machine harvesting them, using renewable energy sources such as solar power for production processes, recycling water used during production processes and more. By doing so they are helping reduce their carbon footprint while also helping protect the environment around them from pollution caused by traditional winemaking methods.

 Finally, Madalina have been actively involved in promoting wine tourism in Romania through various events such as wine tastings or educational seminars about wine production techniques held at local vineyards or restaurants throughout the country. This has helped increase awareness about Romanian wines among tourists while also providing an additional source of income for locals who work in the industry or own vineyards themselves.

 Overall Madalina's efforts have been successful in creating a positive social impact through winemaking tools in Romania while also promoting sustainable development within their local community. Their story serves as an example of how small businesses can make a big difference when it comes making an impact on society through responsible business practices that benefit both people living there now as well those who will come after them.
