It is directed to support the implementation of the project “With the seniors’ experience, Your voice gets at a higher level”, aiming at encouraging active participation of seniors in community daily life, as well as in proposing some community initiative and addressing local problems. Another objective is to encourage the participation of seniors in decision-making process led by Leova rayon council and local councils from Leova town, Filipeni, Hanasenii Noi, Sirma and Sarata Noua villages.

We are, also, interested in working with young generation, better say involving volunteers in our project, as well as encouraging them to attend LPAs meetings.

As an instrument that will be created within our project and will advocate for seniors, will be the Council of seniors, which will comprise 7 seniors and 10 volunteers from the selected localities. This council will pay a role of monitoring, consultation and transparency assurance of the decision making processes.
