Our project in Moldova, working in partnership with local NGO Partnerships for Every Child and UK-based Mellow Parenting, has come to a successful end.
Launched in 2016, the project focused on improving access to early-years and preschool support for vulnerable children with special needs in five regions of Moldova. HealthProm was responsible for designing and implementing a capacity strengthening programme for local professionals working with children with disabilities. This included trainings in the Makaton language programme, Portage (a home-based educational support approach) and Therapeutic Interactive Music Making. As a result of this work, the Ministry of Education has indicated its commitment to officially integrating these trainings into professional development programmes going forward. This is a notable achievement that will ensure the on-going capacity development of local professionals.
We wish to thank our project partners and all who were involved in the implementation of this project. The final independent evaluation can be downloaded below.
