On Monday, April 4, 2022, the mayors of the partner communities Domulgeni, Cașunca, Ștefănești, Prodănești signed the Grant Agreement with the “Mă Implic” project. The signing of the Agreement is a result of the joint work of the Community Initiative Team and the municipalities of the four localities. The local public authorities, together with the citizens, are making joint efforts to create a modern communal solid waste management service, with the support of the “Mă Implic” project. Under the agreement, the partners will receive a grant of up to 65,000 Swiss francs to carry out the work and/or procure the necessary equipment for the project realization.
In addition to financial support, beneficiaries receive consultancy and capacity-building services. The project on civic engagement in local government “Mă Implic” helps municipalities and service providers not only to improve 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, 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.
