The project aims at covering the lack of information and promotion of the Gaguzian culture and traditions via a series of photo and video reportages which would reveal to the national and international community the insights of the mostly unknown culture of an ethnic minority from Moldova, namely the Gagauzian minority. On the other hand the volunteers will inform Moldovan society about European integration processes, as well as providing issue-related support to governmental bodies, media, NGOs and specialized research institutions.
The volunteers will prepare a series of video and photo reportages about the social and cultural life of Gagauzia and will write periodical newsletters about the culture of the region.
