Project Overview and Role

The project’s focus will be supporting the Government of Moldova (GOM) in completing the deinstitutionalization process and preventing future institutionalization of children through improved policy and regulation; development of services to strengthen family care and prevent unnecessary separation; strengthened gatekeeping; modification of social norms and behaviors within the family that drive family separation; support for implementation of the country’s Child Care Reform, with an emphasis on alternative care; and creating sustainable financing models for alternative care models to include the redirection of funds currently financing state child care institutions.

Keystone Human Services International seeks a Grants Manager for the upcoming USAID-funded “Copilaria Mea” project. The goal of “Copilaria Mea” is to increase the number of children living within appropriate, permanent, and protective family care and reduce the number of children growing up in institutional care and ensure the necessary legal and social conditions for raising and educating children in the family environment.

The project will have two primary objectives:

  1. Prevention of unnecessary family separation;
  2. Strengthen the care reform process, focusing on the complete deinstitutionalization of children and those with severe or multiple disabilities into nurturing family care.
