According to official statistics, Moldova is one of the poorest countries in Europe – communists ruled for a long time after the collapse of the USSR and the country stagnated during their rule. Despite limited economic growth, the situation of the inhabitants did not improve much. Thus far, not even the pro-European government that was elected in 2009 has been able to draw Moldova out of an unstable economic situation accompanied by rampant corruption. According to estimates, over 500 thousand out of the entire four million inhabitants have gone abroad in search of work. The money that they send home to their families exceeds developmental aid from abroad and makes up 40% of the entire GDP.

In particular the poor economic situation of the country, dysfunctional infrastructure, poverty, migration and the Moldova - Trans-Dniester conflict are among the most serious problems of today’s Moldova.

People in Need has been working in Moldova since 2003. Until 2009, our activities were aimed primarily at passing on transformational experiences to the representatives of local self-governments; since 2010, the focus has been on the development of civil society and the support of local initiative groups.   

Furthermore, People in Need focuses on projects in the area of agriculture. It trains farmers not only in the area of ecological agriculture technology, but also in the area of marketing and entrepreneurship so that they may have the chance to succeed with their products both in domestic and foreign markets.
