Moldova: Good Governance
Through good governance projects, People in Need works to empower and inspire civil society to learn about and participate in local governance structures. The aim of such projects is that more members of the community can have their voices heard and their needs met. PIN encourages the creation of Local Action Groups in Moldova as a new format for cooperation and problem solving at the local level.
Among other things, a Local Action Group comprising of active citizens, youth, public authorities, the private sector and civil society organisations, might for example work together to set the priorities for local development.
Development of civil society and local self-governments
In the three years the project has been going on, over 30 non-governmental organizations from 20 districts in Moldova have been supported. Examples of local non-governmental organization projects supported include the opening of a canteen for abandoned elderly people, repair and opening of a playground for children, repair and equipping of a school canteen, support of a campaign against violence towards women and the support of a leisure time club integrating children with disabilities.
