Training for the local team in Coteala village

On Wednesday, July 19 2017, Moldovan Christian Aid has organized a training for the members of the multidisciplinary team in village Coteala, rayon Briceni, Northern region of Moldova. The team has been created recently to participate in the implementation of the project “Improving family protection and preservation at the local level by developing community advocacy capacities”. 9 communities from the Northern part of Moldova are involved in the project activities. The team, which is coordinated by the community social assistant, also includes the village priest, two social workers, local schoolteacher, librarian, adult and young volunteers.  A local council member participated in the training, showing her interest to participate in the advocacy campaign in order to promote family values and to support the protection of vulnerable families from the community. Altogether 22 active people from Coteala participated in the training activities.

The local team succeeded to learn what advocacy is and to practice skills that are useful in planning an advocacy campaign being involved in several practical exercises and small group work. In the end of the learning sessions they came out with a draft of the action plan to conduct informational community events that will promote family preservation and unity. The training ended up with the usual evaluation session during which the participants completed the evaluation questionnaire. The majority of participants appreciated the training very much, being highly appreciated the methods used during the seminar as well as the usefulness of the information received and proposed to organize such trainings more often and on different topics related to community participation and mobilization.
