I'm Violetta Odagiu from Moldova. I am a paralegal since 2010.
In June 2017 Moldovan paralegals created the National Paralegals Association in Moldova (NPAM). I am the executive director of NPAM.

I worked as a community paralegal in a rural community from Moldova within the project “The Stimulation of the Democracy Processes from Moldova through Empowerment and Participation”, the component: “Legal Empowerment of the Rural Communities through a Membership of Community Paralegals”. I have also activated on the project “The promotion of Community Education and the Documentation of the Failure Cases of the Human Rights at the Local Level through the Legal Empowerment of the paralegals”, both projects implemented by the Fundation Soros Moldova.
In this period I was able to help many people, but still very most people have not understood yet the benefits of legal empowerment. For this reason I want to know many ways to motivate people to develop their legal empowerment which will facilitate access to justice, protect and defend their rights.

National Paralegals Association in Moldova (NPAM) is the professional and apolitical organization of paralegals in Moldova. For more then 5 years, members of the association have been connecting people in over 30 communities with decision makers at local, regional and national level. Our vision is that every Moldovan knows their rights and makes use of them.
Violetta Odagiu is the network champion (main point of contact) for National Paralegals Association in Moldova (NPAM).
