The project “Better opportunities for Young Women and Men Not in Education, Employment and Training in Moldova” seeks to contribute to better social inclusion and empowerment of NEET (not in education, employment or training) young women and men in Moldova through active civil society engagement. Rooted in human rights principles and standards, the action employs a three-dimensional approach: (a) CSO advocacy for inclusive public policy; (b) CSO engagement in design and implementation of inclusive services targeting NEET young women and men; (c) active CSO involvement in design and implementation of positive measures towards most vulnerable NEET young women and men.

Specific project objectives: Mobilized civil society effectively advocates for more inclusive policies aiming at reducing youth NEET rate; Empowered local CSOs contribute to more inclusive youth services targeting NEET youth; NEET young people have more self-employment opportunities by accessing more entrepreneurship, including social entrepreneurship programs.
