Results: The project team helped to establish the local implementation committee, negotiated and signed the Grant Agreement with the local community. All technical estimates were carried out, a construction company was selected through a public tender to run the works. The capital reconstruction of Block C was completed in September 2013. The reconstruction of block C allows for additional 30 children from the village of Pirita to be enrolled in pre-school education in improved conditions. In addition, the implementation of this project allows stopping outflow of young families and creates favourable conditions for life and work of the village inhabitants. These improvements also contribute to mobilization of local population in terms of socioeconomic development of the village. Thus over 10 young mothers obtained the opportunity for economical inclusion.
