Purpose: Improving the quality of the educational-didactical process in kindergartens from Zgurita village, Cotova and Tepilova villages.

Target groups: ≈ 72 children from the kindergar-ten from Zgurita village; 80 children between 2 and 7 years from Cotova village; 100 pupils from Tepilova village, among them – 15 children – from socially vulnerable families and 8 children with dis-abilities.

Short description and activities of the project: Kindergartens and schools represent social institutions of major importance. Unfortunately the economical situations in the villages of Moldova does not allow additional funding for a harmonious development of children.Given the fact that the project was approved later than planned, the direct beneficiaries of the project changed: children from kindergarten from Zgurita village and children from kindergarten „St. Stelian” from Costesti village.The project’s funds were used to purchase, to transport and to install the equipment at this 2 loca-tions. The local employees would be responsible for the organization of the free time of children, for their physical development.At 30 of August, when we went to the North of the country within the campaign „Help the bell ring for every child”, we also have visited the kin-dergarten from Zgurita.

The inauguration of the playground in Cost-esti village, Ialoveni region was the 2 of September, when children gathered for a new educational year, after the summer holidays. We couldn’t skip such an important event for children, also because they are the youngest volunteers of „Filocalia”: they have presented beautiful concerts for our elderly-beneficiaries at the Republican Asylum for elderly and pensioned people, but also for pupils with men-tal disabilities from the boarding school no. 5 from Chisinau. Children were very happy about the new equipment. The teachers hardly managed to bring them back to classes.

Results: Playgrounds were arranged and used ac-cordingly to the initial destination.
