Andrușul de Sus and Andrușul de Jos signed the Grant Agreement within the partnership with the MĂ IMPLIC Project.
The signing of the Agreement is a result of the joint work of the Community Initiative Team and the associated municipalities, which together with the citizens, make joint efforts to create a modern communal solid waste management service in both localities, with the support of MĂ IMPLIC Project. Under the agreement, the partner municipalities will receive a grant of a maximum of 65,000 Swiss francs, for carrying out the works and/or procuring the necessary equipment, for the realization of the project.
In addition to the purchase of equipment and works, CITs will organize fundraising campaigns for the 20% contribution of municipalities, as well the awareness campaigns will be continued, the purpose of which is to change the attitude of citizens towards waste, environment, personal and collective responsibility towards the sanitation of the village.
In addition to financial support, beneficiaries receive consultancy and capacity-building services. The “MĂ IMPLIC” project helps the municipality and the service provider not only to improve the infrastructure but also to develop long-term approaches to keep this infrastructure in good shape and to have sustainable models for financing the provision of services. In our work, we ensure that local citizens, LPA employees, NGOs, and businesses are actively involved in modernizing community services in the community and especially that the less advantaged have equal access to these services.
The project is funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and implemented by SKAT Consulting.
