Short description: The village Firladeni of the district of Causeni is located on the right bank of the Nistru River, 12 km away from the town of Bendery. There are 4,700 inhabitants, out of them 190 are children aged from 3 to 7, while around 2,100 inhabitants in Firladeni and surrounding communities are employed and directly affected by the lack of a kindergarten facility that would enable them to enroll their children in pre-school education. The kindergarten does not function since 1994, while it is indisputable that this institution is vitally necessary for ensuring access to basic education services. The opening of the kindergarten is set to create additional jobs for 33 persons and give children a possibility to get comprehensive pre-school education in improved conditions

Beneficiaries: 190 children as well as 2100 adult inhabitants from Firladeni village and neighboring communities

Results: The absence of a kindergarten in the village was a major problem for the village inhabitants as it deprived the children of a fundamental right to have access to qualitative education as well as hindered their parents’ ability to be fully integrated in their professional activities. The educational services provided by the facility will be further improved as the local administration provided necessary funds to hire the necessary professional and technical personnel at the kindergarten.
