Study Visit "Bunica Beats the Drum"
Start date: Feb 1, 2013,
Study Visit “Bunica Beats the Drum” will run between 14-21 April, 2013 in Chisinau, Republic of Moldova. The Visit will give the possibility to 30 youth workers coming from Programme countries and EECA region to get familiar with the reality of rural youth work in Republic of Moldova and to meet the youth policy stakeholders. The Study Visit aims to raise awareness of the youth work in rural area by exploring the challenges and strengths and to promote the involvement of rural youth into international projects, specifically Youth in Action. Annual statistics done by SALTO EECA RC regarding the involvement of youth organizations by countries into Youth in Action Programme shows that Moldova is on the bottom of the list, the reasons being either the lack of information about the YiA programme in the country or the lack of motivation of European organizations to cooperate with Moldavian institutions. In this sense the visit will promote Youth in Action programme in countryside by visiting different rural youth organizations and will promote the European cooperation by establishing partnerships for future cooperation. As a result we want to raise the value of rural youth organizations and to get them involved into international youth work, to promote Youth in Action programme and the cooperation with Moldavian organizations.
