About this grant

The program goal is to extend the model of community schools in Moldova. Project activities will focus on: democratizing both classroom practice and school governance; building school-community partnerships for sustainable local development; and developing the nationwide community school network. Step by Step Moldova has successfully introduced the model into 22 schools, training over 400 teachers in principles of cooperative learning underpinning community education. As a result, a range of social and vocational services have been developed in participating communities through active community involvement. Step by Step Moldova has promoted democratic change in Moldova’s education system since 1994.
