The Moldovan Coalition of active NGOs in the field of Child and Family Social Protection

  1. The Moldovan Coalition of active NGOs in the field of Child and Family Social Protection (APSCF) is a network counting 88 local and national NGOs from all over Moldova, active in the field of the Child and Family Social Protection. The coalition was established in 2002 and legally registered on September 24, 2014. Since its creation, the Alliance was thought as a coalition of civil society representatives eager to become a unique and stronger voice of children and their families, in order to promote their fundamental rights as stated in the UN Child Rights Convention. Between important topics covered by its members is the reform of childcare system in Moldova, including the deinstitutionalization of children placed in boarding schools, creation of new social services at local level and support to development of alternative care, as well as promotion of inclusive education for deinstitutionalized, disabled and excluded children.  APSCF has three strategic objectives: 1. promoting and contributing to the implementation of appropriate and workable public policies in the field of child and family protection.  2. contributing to the development of capacity of member organisations to address the issue of child and family protection.  3. facilitating the experience exchange among the stakeholders involved in the child and family protection at national, regional and international level. APSCF is member of  ChildPact.

ChildPact, the Regional Coalition for Child Protection

ChildPact, the Regional Coalition for Child Protection, is a network of networks that brings together 600 child-focused NGOs from 10 different countries. Our members work with more than 500.000 vulnerable children. ChildPact advocates for regional cooperation and believes that child rights networks play an essential role in promoting the child protection reforms and innovation. ChildPact has three strategic objectives: 1. Advocate for and contribute to evidence based policy making that embeds child protection at all levels of decision and implementation; 2. Support the strengthening of its members’ capacity to tackle current and emergent issues in child protection; 3. Act as a reference point on child protection issues based on the Child Protection Index.

Background Information

In the last 20 years, governments in our region strived to reform their child welfare and protection systems, but reforms remain incomplete and children remain the most vulnerable members of our society. To address this situation, in every country child-focused NGOs have come together in child rights networks to advocate for better lives for children. Civil society networks are crucial for improving children’s lives, but they lack adequate funding, which leads to gaps in efficiency. Philanthropic movements are embryonic in the ChildPact countries, but people who want to help do exist. The fundraising consultant will help us identify them and create opportunities for harnessing their ideas, resources and enthusiasm to the aim of improving children’s lives.
