The project was supported by the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The overall objective of FIT Into Society project was the strategic development of Moldovan civil society by enhancing CSOs social embeddedness, financial sustainability and operational effectiveness using Hungarian transition experience.
Specific aim was to develop CSOs social embeddedness and financial sustainability by putting new emphasis on fundraising, operational transparency and social innovation concentrating on the following questions:
- Civil organisations deeper FIT into society
- Achieving a better financial FITness
- Using innovative FITtings in addressing social problems
- FIT in the international network pattern
During the seven month project period the following activities were carried out: two day FIT training set, before and after online consultation session and the final chord, the Donor Forum.
As project outputs, 16 participants from different civil organisations could take part in the 2 day FIT training and also during online consultation session before and after the training. For projects final event most active leaders of Moldovan NGOs, representatives of local authorities, experts and donors were also invited. As participants came from both banks of the Dniester including Transnistria and Gagauzia, as indirect objective this project could successfully contribute to the confidence building ambitions gaining more and more attention in Moldova.
