Inspiring Schools: Discover the best Moldovan schools nurturing a safe environment

21 November 2023

  • The school must be a friendly, inclusive and safe environment for both students and teaching/non-teaching staff, where there is no place for discrimination or violence, and the conditions motivate students to learn and feel good.

Wondering what such an institution looks like? We'll tell you.

By the end of this year, you will discover friendly educational institutions within the national campaign „Schools that inspire”. In this regard, several videos, articles and posts will be promoted to illustrate institutions that develop, support and promote programs and initiatives for the physical and psycho-emotional well-being of every person in the school environment.

The schools were selected following a public announcement, launched at the end of September on social media. In a single week we received 105 files from the whole country, especially from schools in villages and districts.

They described their experience and achievements according to the indicators included in the questionnaire, naming: decent hygiene conditions and separate changing rooms; access to health information in compulsory/optional lessons and in extracurricular activities; socio-educational inclusion of vulnerable groups; promoting equal opportunities for girls and boys; prevention of bullying among students and teachers; ensuring a friendly environment for employees in the institution and outside the institution; attracting young teachers; supporting volunteer actions and collaborating with Youth Centers, etc.

All campaign materials will be published on the Facebook pages of the Ministry of Education and Research, UNFPA Moldova and, as well as on the official websites of these institutions.

The campaign is carried out as part of the Youth Empowerment Program through the development of life skills, supported by the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) in the Republic of Moldova, in partnership with the Ministry of Education and Research of the Republic of Moldova, the Media Center for Youth and , with the financial support of Great Britain and Sweden.
