Project title: Rural Network Partnership for Sustainable Development – RND

Funding programme: Sectoral Operational Programme Human Resources Development 2007 ­ 2013, European Social Fund

Period of implementation: January 2011 – May 2013

Short description:

General objectives: The project has pursued the sustainable development of two regions of Romania: South-Muntenia (a poor one) and Buchares-Ilfov (a rich one). RND has already undertaken the process of establishing a rural partnership network for sustainable development in the 4 counties: Calarasi, Giurgiu, Ialomita and Ilfov.

The first main objective of the project was the establishment of four groups of specialists in rural sustainable development (design, implementation, evaluation), one for each county;

The second main objective was the establishment of part time Job Centers in each county, where intermediation for employment took place, presentation of available part-time jobs in the 4 counties (from RND’s and partner’s databases), for dissemination of results from the two researches on the labor market in the two regions (an initial one and a final one).

The third main objective was performing lectures, professional training courses, seminars and practical activities for initiation and development of entrepreneurial skills for 3 target groups. The planned actions were: lectures explaining the functionality of the labor market; courses for qualification/requalification for employment fields needed in the labor market (commerce, construction and hairdressing, derived from the labor market study in the rural environment in the 4 counties); general management course; sales techniques course; development of entrepreneurial activities course package (comprising knowledge of legislation, basic accountancy).

There was a practical aspect too, taking into account the fact that 60 of the graduate-clients of the RND project became permanent members of the established networks in the 4 counties. The role of BRCCI was mainly to assist with the transfer of experience through organizing study tours for the Romanian graduates to meet counterparts from several rural areas in Bulgaria.
