Project Description: 

Currently, there are 5,000 children aged three to 18 years old with special educational needs in the city of Grigoriopol. Due to the urgent need of a specialised educational and recreational centre for them, the local public administration has allocated the building of the former cinema “Vostok” for these purposes.

This project aims at helping children to receive quality education and assure sustainable access to a subsequent full socialisation through strengthening their capacities to use the obtained skills in their daily lives. Therefore, the centre was supplied with educational games and play stations and helped develop new educational approaches.

The project also contributes to the achieving of the UN-2030 Sustainable Development Goals in Moldova by giving young people the opportunity to get familiar with the activities of international organisations dealing with the SDGs. It was financed by Green Nations and the National Commission of the Republic of Moldova for UNESCO and accompanied by HOPE’87-Moldova with technical advice.
