The overall objective “To contribute to the empowerment of Moldovan youth and Moldovan civil society so as to improve the socio-economic situation of young people in Moldova” highlights the fact that both young people themselves, as well as civil society, can influence the improvement of the socio-economic situation of youth in Moldova. When socio-economic rights of young people are respected, their socio-economic situation will improve. It is important not only to empower civil society to stand up for these rights but also to empower youth themselves so they are more capable to fight for their own rights.
This way of thinking is reflected in the specific objectives:
1. Civil society and socio-economic actors promote socio-economic rights for young people;
2. Young people can more easily find decent work;
3. Young people are motivated and able to represent themselves and to actively participate in the Moldovan society.
 
The specific objectives of the project focus on making important steps towards the improvement of the socio-economic rights situation for youth in Moldova by building capacities of Moldovan youth and Moldovan civil society.
 
The project has several key stakeholder groups. The local partners are highly motivated and dedicated to the project. They perceive the action as crucial for the further improvement of the situation of youth in Moldova. During the preparation of this action several focus group discussions were held with young people. The discussions made clear that young people have a very pessimistic view on their life and socio-economic future in Moldova.
 
The project concentrated the activities in 4 regions: Falesti, Ungheni, Calarasi and Causeni.
 
Beneficiaries of the project: Young people, including disabled, between 16 and 30 years old from the regions of Ungheni, Calarasi, Falesti and Causeni, socio-economic actors and civil society organisations from the regions of Ungheni, Calarasi, Falesti.
