The mission of the Cultural Policies program at Soros Foundation Moldova is to contribute to the development of an open, participatory, pluralistic society based on values of democracy. In order to achieve its goals, the program organizes, facilitates, supports and finances activities intended to strengthen the cultural sector and cultural policies in Republic of Moldova.
The Program promotes legal reforms based on human rights, legal accountability, social inclusion and good governance. The Program is focused on three intervention areas, essential for the development of an open society and the rule of law:
The Equality and Civic Engagement Program combines operational projects (managed directly by the Foundation) with grants programs.
The Public Health Program’s mission is to advance health and human rights of marginalized persons through building the capacity of civil society leaders and strong involvement of NGOs in health policy development.
