Who We Are

Founded in 2003 by Keystone Human Services International, the Keystone Human Services International Moldova Association (Keystone Moldova) aims for the social inclusion of individuals living in difficult social situations, including persons with disabilities. Keystone Moldova is planning to achieve this goal through the following objectives:

  • To contribute to the improvement of the legal and regulatory framework of the social protection system for vulnerable groups of the population, including persons with disabilities
  • To contribute to the reform of the social care system for persons with disabilities through the promotion of deinstitutionalization and reintegration with families and community services
  • To support the development of community based social care services for persons with disabilities and other people living in difficult social situations
  • To support the inclusion of people in difficult social situations, including persons with disabilities, in typical community services, as well as educational schools
  • To contribute to the reduction of poverty of families living in difficult social situations, including persons with disabilities, by promoting their employment
  • To help change public attitudes toward people in difficult social situations, including persons with disabilities, to promote an environment of inclusion and equal opportunities for the development of all community members regardless of race, language, disability, sex, or age

In pursuing its goals, Keystone Moldova supports the Ministry of Labor, Social Protection and Family to improve the regulatory framework for the social protection of persons with disabilities, with the goal of successfully implementing the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and social inclusion.
