The wind of change

Project “The wind of change” is a support for the Moldovan third sector in the field of developing NGOs that will involve and activate young people to undertake important social initiatives. In addition to providing participants with theoretical knowledge in the field of formal aspects (legal and financial), we also want to provide practical information on the functioning and development of such an organization, especially in the current pandemic situation, in which office work has been replaced by online work. The project is dedicated to young and ambitious people who are active and eager to work, contributing to local development – primarily informal groups, students and members of young NGOs.
