The Liechtenstein Development Service (LED) is a private-law foundation of the Government and the civil society of Liechtenstein, which has been working in development aid since 1965. LED works in the fields of education, health and rural development, giving priority to gender issues, social justice and environment. LED is committed to ensure that everyone enjoys the fundamental right to education, working especially with those who are most vulnerable and with disadvantaged people in regions that are economically more fragile. 

​In Republic of Moldova, LED started its activity in September 2007 with an aim to contribute to the improvement of the education system in general, and vocational education in particular. Besides funding and monitoring different projects implemented by local NGO's, LED has implemented projects on the Vocational Education and Training (VET) level. Since 2017, LED Moldova changed to the role of donor, continuing the collaboration with the strategic partners who continue the support to the VET system. Our commitment is to develop strong partnerships with the governmental structures, with actors of the civil society, and with other donors and project implementers in Republic of Moldova so to ensure a lasting impact on the individuals, educational sector and communities we work together.  


LED Moldova supports a number of partner organizations in their work to improve the educational offers for young people in accordance with the support strategy below. In doing this, LED attaches great importance to: 

  • Moldovan partner organizations with a clear-cut profile that meets the needs of the target groups and corresponds to one's own competencies.

  • long-term relations based on trust, responsibility and reliability.

  • honest communication unafraid of addressing strengths and weaknesses tactfully.

  • a small administration working in an efficient and predictable way.

  • economical and correct handling of funds. The LED lets itself be reviewed regularly by the National Audit Office of Liechtenstein.
