Between 2015 – 2017, the Alliance of Active NGOs in the field of Child and Family Social Protection (APSCF) is implementing the project ”A strong NGO alliance – a strong child protection system in the Republic of Moldova”. The project aims to improve child protection in the Republic of Moldova by strengthening the capacities of APSCF’s member NGOs active in the field of child and family social protection.
- Strengthening APSCF capacities;
- Monitoring the implementation of child rights in the Republic of Moldova;
- Supporting the implementation of the Child Protection Strategy 2014-2020.
The two years of the project will be dedicated to developing the organizational capacities of APSCF as a network, on the one hand, and to monitoring the implementation of the child rights in the Republic of Moldova, on the other.
For the organizational development of APSCF, the project provides for the elaboration and approval of the internal operation documents of the network, the organization of the General Assembly of APSCF members, the development of the lobbying and advocacy capacities, the Strategic Planning for the next 5 years, and the Child Protection Policy.
To monitor the implementation of child rights in the Republic of Moldova, the project aims to support piloting the Child Protection Index, the elaboration of the Alternative Report to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, to monitor the compliance of the RM-EU Association Agreement, and to strengthen the dialogue between the Government and civil society on the child protection segment.
As regards supporting the implementation of the Child Protection Strategy 2014-2020, the project has proposed the development and the implementation of a communication plan for the key messages of the 2006-2012 Reform Assessment Report (2006-2012) and the encouragement of APSCF and its members to contribute to the development of the National Action Plan for the Child Protection Strategy 2014-2020. Likewise, within this component will be organised study visits and experience exchanges between local public authorities in order to scale up best practices in the development of social services.
