Annual Forum 2017

On November 18, parish volunteers and youth club members from 10 villages gathered at the Annual Forum 2017. About 80 people from Alexandreni, Edinet, Varatic, Rotunda, and Coteala including youngsters, priests and other parish volunteers participated in the meeting that took place in the events hall ”Bastillia” in town Edinet.

The speeches of MCA project coordinators that highlighted the most important outcomes of the activities implemented in the target villages within the last year opened the Forum. The event continued with the speech of the bishop of Edinet and Briceni, Nicodim, who congratulated the participants with the successfully implemented activities and thanked them for the great job they do in their communities. The Forum continued with the intellectual quiz for 5 teams that included 10 young people each. It was a real challenge for the youngsters who had to remember the topics that were discussed during the trainings within a year as well as to answer the questions of general knowledge and logical ones. Moreover, within the quiz each parish had to present the results of their activities within the project " Strengthening advocacy capacities of the local CSOs to support vulnerable elderly in rural areas of Moldova." Most of the teams prepared slide show or video presentations. The winners of the quiz were awarded with a bean bag.

The Annual Forum was a great opportunity for the participants to revise the whole project period. Moreover, they had the chance to share their experiences being quite curious to see what had been done in other villages as well. This provided an opportunity to learn from the others, to see similar and familiar situations in another light and to take new ideas into consideration for further application in their future activities.
