One Vote, One Chance

One Vote, One Chance

This project was implemented by the Institute for Rural Initiatives and supported by IREX in Moldova under USAID’s Community Participation Programme.

The goal of the project was to increase the level of participation of different national minorities in the local general elections of 2007 as well as developing a sense of trust in the Moldovan electoral system and its legislation.

Representatives of 7 national minorities from 15 local communities in Cahul district (Russians, Ukrainians, Bulgarians, Jews, Germans, Czechs, and Roma) were involved in the activities of the project while a series of social leaders and activists were mobilized and trained to motivate representatives of national minorities to participate at the elections and vote.
