During an online meeting IPIS team met the volunteers from the Cimișlia’s Youth Centre and representatives of the Cimislia Local Association to discuss existing tools for social campaigns. IPIS experts shared their experience in effective communication with journalists and local public authorities. In addition, we talked about how to create an efficient NGO, as well as how to attract foreign funds that are destinated to Moldovan NGO sector. In the coming months, we will accompany the activists from the Cimislia region in achieving their goals and implementing some projects. The meeting took place within the programme “Vocal social campaigns at local level”, which is implemented within the Grant Programme “Development of civil society at local level in Moldova”, financed by the EU and the Conrad Adenauer Foundation (KAS).
