About MSIF
Moldova Social Investment Fund (MSIF) is a Project, created with the support of the World Bank and donor countries aiming at contributing to National Development Strategies implementation, by empowering poor communities and their institutions to manage their priority development needs.
The main factors contributing to the elaboration and development of this project were not only the social-economical decline during last several years, the reduction of life quality indicators and impoverishment of a considerable part of the population, particularly in the rural area and small towns, but also the decrease of moral spirit and of the level of population’s implication in the process of community medium changes.
In the context of development policies and strategies of Moldova, the Social Investment Fund is considered to be an efficient mechanism for changing of community population’s attitudes and behavior, for social activism increase, for community’s solidarity spirit increase and for life quality increase in poor population and in vulnerable groups by increasing the access to improved social services.
The target groups of MSIF Project’s beneficiaries consist of the poor population from deprived rural communities and small towns, and persons in difficulty, as well as orphans, persons with disabilities, those affected by human traffic, HIV/AIDS etc. MSIF Project contributes to these groups’ organizational capacity development and to an increase in the sense of responsibility for everything that happens in the community by means of their direct involvement in the process of their stringent needs identification and in the subprojects proposals implementation and sustainability maintenance.
Promoting the social partnership development at the community level and the participatory elaboration of strategic plans for community social-economical development, MSIF supports the objectives of the local public reform and contributes to capacity building of the institutions from the community, to provision of respect for participation and transparency principles, and as a result to a sustainable community development.
