Some of the highlights of the work accomplished during this period include: 

Objective 1: CSOs More Effectively Represent their Constituencies

  • Nineteen decisions aimed at improving collaborative governance, child protection, social inclusion of at-risk populations, and socio-economic development of villages and towns were issued by local and district authorities as a result of MPSCS grantees’ advocacy campaigns.
  • Ten fixed amount awards signed within the two rounds of the Citizen Act Small Grants Program: beneficiary CSOs are engaging citizens in decision making in the Gagauz region and Basarabeasca raion of Moldova; protect children online; develop and improve legal protections for people living with HIV, people with mental disabilities, and victims of medical malpractice; and develop a Sustainable Waste Management System in Balti, 2nd largest city in Moldova.

Objective 2: The Institutional Capacities of Strategic Partners Developed

  • More than 70 CSO representatives trained in project writing, good governance, human resources and results-based management by CICO.
