Study visit to HDI

In the period of 24 – 29th of January 2016, two representatives of the MCA – the “Know-How-You-Do!” project coordinator and the coordinator of the Department for social activity and charity of the Diocese of Edinet and Briceni – participated to the training in CABLE methodology, organized by HDI in Helsinki, Finland. The training was combined from theoretical part and visiting several social services as practical part. Among the visited services were: youth clubs, centers for adults, foster home for children etc. That gave us a variety of ideas and models on organizing the activity of the Youth Clubs developed in the project.

Due to the fact that the studying group was international, our representatives had a good exchange of practices and ideas. One of the results was the agreement to implement the training program that was piloted in Namibia, or at least a part of it.

At the end of the visit, our partners from Filantropia donated us about 30 blankets handmade by their beneficiaries to be distributed in Moldova to elderly people in need.

The overall result of participating to the training of the better understanding of the CABLE methodology and the principles of applying it in practice. Our representatives are planning to share their experience with local partners and to encourage them to apply it in practice.
