The Community Initiative Teams from six partner localities of the project on civic engagement in local governance “MĂ IMPLIC” have successfully completed the communication mentorship program

In November-December 2021, the persons responsible for communication in the Community Initiative Teams from Vorniceni, Logănești, Borogani, Capaclia, Andrușul de Sus, Leușeni benefited from a total of 65 hours of consulting from communication experts from QUBO Communications.

Participants showed great interest and actively participated in the planned meetings. Most have chosen to work on improving the communication plans, to work on the design and text for information leaflets, being an actual topic when numerous information campaigns are being organized to inform citizens about improving / creation of communal services.

All participants appreciated the need and value of mentoring sessions. Participants developed practical skills to create, plan and develop effective communication tools to increase the visibility of community actions.

The mentorship program was organized as part of the capacity building activities of the partner communities. In the period 2021-2023, thirty localities / groups of localities are implementing projects aimed at improving the delivery of communal household services, with the support of the Project “MĂ IMPLIC”, financed by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and implemented by SKAT Consulting. Following the signed agreement, the municipalities benefit from funding (maximum 65,000 CHF), consulting, and capacity building services. The Project “MĂ IMPLIC” will help the LPA 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 will ensure that local citizens, employees of LPAs, NGOs, economic agents are actively involved in modernizing public services in the community and especially that the less advantaged have equal access to these services.
