Civil Society Actors as Drivers of Change in the South Caucasus and Moldova

Civil Society Actors as Drivers of Change in the South Caucasus and Moldova

This regional project aims to support newly established civil society organisations, grassroots groups, civic initiatives, and social and cultural movements in their roles as trusted actors advancing the democratic process in the countries of the South Caucasus region and the Republic of Moldova.
With support from the project team and skilled facilitators, each selected organisation will develop strategies to strengthen its role in society and encourage the systemic change it is working to influence. Participants will have a chance to assess their own capacities and access tailored trainings, coaching, mentoring, consultations, study visits, and fellowships. They will also be able to strengthen connections with their communities, supporters, and volunteers, as well as to network with peers and partners in Armenia, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova, and other countries.
Moreover, the selected organisations will have access to resources for research, building of thematic expertise, and participation in policy dialogues at the local, national, and international levels. They will explore if, why, and how to engage with the private sector, and how to self-organise and manage resources in an effective, transparent, and accountable way. Finally, project participants will be able to apply for flexible funding to support their organisational development and public campaigns.
EU COVID-19 Solidarity Programme for the Eastern Partnership

EU COVID-19 Solidarity Programme for the Eastern Partnership

The aim of this project is to mitigate the adverse effects of COVID-19 and to contribute to longer-term socio-economic resilience of vulnerable groups in Eastern Europe. Under the implementation of People in Need (PIN), and in partnership with the Netherlands Helsinki Committee (NHC) and AFEW International (AFEW), the project aims to propose a set of interventions in several countries, including Armenia, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine.

PIN recognises the critical role local civil society organisations (CSOs) and independent media play in service delivery, community mobilisation, awareness raising, policy engagement, and advocacy for the protection of human rights and civic freedoms during and after the pandemic. We will support the CSOs and other civic actors to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on vulnerable populations by empowering them with services and access to accurate information.

PIN will capitalise on its in-depth field-level knowledge to support CSOs that focus on community-level initiatives, watchdog programmes, and local independent journalism. Our partners NHC and AFEW are specialised in activities to improve human rights protection for responsible persons in closed institutions and key populations at risk for public health concerns like HIV, TB, and viral hepatitis. We will provide grant support to NGOs working with these beneficiaries and assist them in developing strengthened monitoring, reporting, advisory, agenda-setting, and advocacy work.
