Basket Fund for Moldova programme announces projects’ selection

7 projects were selected within the Call for Proposal of the Basket Fund initiative, launched in June 2010 by the European Partnership for Democracy (EPD) and East Europe Foundation (EEF) in the framework of the European Partnership Fair for Civil Society Organizations in Moldova.
The main aim of the Basket Fund is to support projects that would correspond to the Partnership Fair's goals: share valuable experience from European transitions to democracy; develop new partnerships; strengthen the country's fledgling democracy and show support for the country's pro-European agenda. At the moment, the Basket Fund consists of financial contribution from East Europe Foundation (EEF), National Endowment for Democracy (NED) and Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Czech Republic.

139 projects were received as an answer to the Basket Fund Call for Proposal - 38 proposals being submitted by Partnership Fair participants. All the projects were reviewed and evaluated by an independent Panel of Experts. As a result of the review process, 16 projects were short-listed and 7 were selected for funding. The size of each project budget is between 8000 and 10000 USD.

The main criteria taken into consideration during the assessment were that projects should be based on the idea of EU-Moldova sustainable Partnership; on sharing knowledge and experience between the partner organizations and that projects should present original and innovative ideas.
