About this grant

The program goal is to further strengthen the model of community schools in Moldova. Project activities will focus on continuing to bring community school practice into the mainstream of Moldovan educational policy. Step by Step Moldova will focus efforts on improving the quality and democratic character of learning in schools, engaging communities in ensuring successful inclusion practices in community schools, and strengthening approaches for schools to promote lifelong learning. In 2014-2016, the grantee trained over 500 teachers and other school stakeholders in critical aspects of community school practice. It introduced new training modules around financial knowledge and management as schools take on greater responsibility for raising financial resources. The grantee also successfully managed regional hubs as centers for exchanging knowledge and practice related to community engagement activities for schools. Step by Step Moldova has promoted democratic change in Moldova’s education system since 1994.
