Established by an initiative group that met online in social media groups, Parinti Solidari was born out of a strong desire to change how things were going in the educational establishments of the Republic of Moldova in the early 2010s. The idea of parents’ solidarity as a way to oppose the pressures of a corrupted educational system was groundbreaking at that time and still is. The organisation has appeared at the very end of 2017 and is very active on social media. Parinti Solidari became the voice of those parents who are looking for justice for them and for their children.
