Training Facilitation methods - 24th & 25th July 2007 in Moldova




Hi Everybody,




On the 24th and 25th July 2007 I conducted a training in facilitation methods for the Moldova Social Investment Fund (MSIF) and Procommunitate in Moldova. Both organisations are activite in empowering poor communities in Moldova in rehabilitating and sustaining their social infrastructure (schools, roads, water supply, facilities for disabled and youth and gassupply).




Moldova is currently suffering from heavy migration. During the last five years around 400,000 - 600,000 migrated to countries in Western Europe and Russia to look for work. Remittancies are at the moment the biggest major income. It is estimated that these are 5 - 10 times the amount of the National Gross Income.




Despite the changes, MSIF and Procommunitate support communities to sustain their social structures for the long term. Moldova has still a lot of potential. Recent developments show that through investment friendly legislation companies are investing in Moldova, and new jobs are being created.




Facilicom Consult is building partnerships with MSIF, Procommunitate and other organisations to support the social and economic development of the country.




Following are some photo impressions.

Training Facilitations methods 24th - 25th July 2007 in Moldova





Hi Everybody,




On the 24th and 25th July 2007 I conducted a training on facilitation methods for staff members of the Moldova Social Investment Fund (MSIF) and Procommunitate. Both organisations are focused at empowering poor communities in villages and small cities in Moldova.




Moldova is at the moment heavily affected by high rates of migration. During the last five years around 300,000 to 600,000 people left the country to look for work in other countries. It is estimated that the income from remittancies is 5 to 10 times higher than the Gross National Income. MSIF and Procommunitate however, support communities to sustain their structures (roads, schools, gassupply, facilities for disabled and youth) so that a good basis will be created for sustainable development on the long term. Recent developments show that conditions for investment and creation of employment have become much better.
