Implementation of the national strategy and action plan for the reform of the residential childcare system in Moldova 2007-2012: Evaluation report
This evaluation was commissioned by UNICEF and its government partners to evaluate the results and achievements of the implementation of the National Strategy and Action Plan. In July 2007 the Government of Moldova approved a National Strategy and Action Plan to reform its residential childcare system. At the time, 12,000 children were thought to be living in large orphanages and boarding schools in Moldova. The goal of the National Strategy and Action Plan was to “ensure and respect the child’s right to grow up in a family.” The overall objectives of the Action Plan were to reduce the number of children living outside a family by 50% and to reorganise residential institutions to support children in families. The evaluation includes recommendations regarding human resource management and training of social workers.
