The Initiative “IntegrACT Amplify: rural youth empowerment” aims to consolidate the results from 2 years within the projects “IntegrACT – diverse youth for a cohesive society” and “IntegrACT PLUS”, to outline the most successful practices and to add value through improvement and stimulation in other rural communities from Moldova.
In these 2 years, the program was tested successfully, becoming an action model with its own approach and way of intervention. The model is the work result of dedicated young people, LPA representatives, the IRI team and volunteers.
Originally in 9 communities, then in 12 more, the project proved that the model is feasible and extremely effective as in youth motivation, mobilization and inclusion in the community’s life, as in the decision-making process. The new project includes 15 rural communities (15 initiative groups with 250 young people), and aims to engage them in a continuous project of interaction and training.
The initiative “IntegrACT Amplify: rural youth empowerment” is implemented by the Institute for Rural Initiatives (IRI) within the 2019 Grant Program for Youth Organizations of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Research of the Republic of Moldova.
