Mayors of 30 localities from the northern and southern Moldova holding their first mandate, participated in the period from 10 to 11 March 2016 to the second phase of the training “A mayor involved – a thriving community” organized by the communication company “Fabrica de imagine”, with the support of the British Embassy in Chisinau.
The local officials were trained under the program how to write projects for development of their localities in line with all requirements of international and local donors.
The trainees had the opportunity to communicate with potential donors through whom they would implement their projects.
The project implemented in two phases was meant both to train the mayors and to enable them to achieve their initially established objectives.
After training the mayors shall make the recommended changes in their projects and send their final version to the trainer. By the end of the program, each trainee will have a well developed project with which he/she will be able to apply for funds from donors.
After training, the mayors said they were highly motivated to use in practice what they had learned during the project.
The organizers planned to contribute through such activity to the development of the country, starting with small communities.
The training “A mayor involved – a thriving community” is organized by the communication company “Fabrica de imagine” as part of the project “Strategic Support for the Local Public Authorities in the Republic of Moldova”, funded by the British Embassy in Chisinau.
