The general aim of the project “Educate. Engage. Empower. Community Tools Against Corruption” was to make Moldovan society more aware of corruption at all levels and more active in confronting it by educating, engaging and empowering the population to act against corruption through the use of ICT tools.

To that end, eGA and CPR Moldova developed the anti-corruption web platform. The platform allows its users to test their understanding and perception of corruption, to learn more about the most common types and characteristics of corruption, and also to report on concrete corruption cases they are aware of or have experienced.

While the first functionality of the platform pursues the goal of educating the public on topic of corruption from different angles, and the second encourages them to get engaged into active reporting on issues that might increase the risk of corruption.

Moldovan civil society organisations are using the input of the platform to plan further anti-corruption advocacy activities.

The project is financed by Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs from the funds of development cooperation and humanitarian aid and Open Society Institute of Open Society Foundation.

What did we achieve?
  • Improved awareness and understanding of the implications of corruption and the risks it poses for the society as a whole;
  • Enhanced engagement of population in active reporting on problematic issues potentially leading to corruption;
  • Strengthened advocacy campaigns to solve issues reported and recognized as a problem to many;
  • A community of active people built around the initiative and motivated to further develop action against corruption;
  • Increased civic activism in online and offline channels.
