Reporter in Gagauzia


Non-governmental organisation Miras-Moldova was established as an initiative group in 2008. The organization was initiated by youth who were motivated to research and protect cultural diversity in Moldova and Gagauzia. The mission of the “Miras-Moldova” is to address social concerns in the Gagauzian autonomy, to assist with the social integration of ethnic minorities and to preserve Moldova's cultural heritage.

The project aims at covering the lack of information and promotion of the Gagauzian 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.
