Working process

Since May 2011 until the end of 2012, CRIC has supported CRWG members by organizing the following activities:

· 4 training sessions lasting 3-4 days each. Participants got knowledge about the CRC, examined the relationship between rights holders and duty bearers, identified institutions and services responsible for the implementation of child rights from own community. Also, the Group members were introduced to the concept of monitoring the CRC, developed monitoring indicators and established methods of data collection.

· 8 regional workshops lasting half a day each, held once every 2-3 months. During the workshops the Group members were helped to develop tools and apply various methods of data collection (observation, questionnaire, interview etc.), analyse the collected data, compile them, draw conclusions and recommendations on monitoring results.

· 4 meetings with stakeholders at district and national level organized to submit the report: joint session with the school principals from Leova and Orhei (May 2012), joint session with the National Council for Child Protection (May 2012), National Children's Forum (November 2012), Reflection Group to consult children on the priorities of the National Strategy for Child and Family Protection (July, October 2012).
