Give Work to 15 Men with Intellectual Disabilities

Jul 31, 2013

We are starting to create art in less than a month!

Intensive preparation is going  on for starting the occupational therapy workshop in St. Vrach - Home for Adults with Intellectual Disabilities in Plovdiv, Bulgaria.

During summer NAVA’s volunteers and followers are collecting raw material that is needed to create corn crafts. In order to start activity, the raw material needs to be collected and spread out in a premise with appropriate lighting, temperature , humidity and ventilation. After that the corn husks will be transformed into beautiful dolls, wall panels and straw mats.

Thanks to continuous donations through Global Giving platform, we succeeded to ensure an initial 18-month funding of the workshop at St. Vrach – Home for Adults with Intellectual Disabilities.

National Alliance for Volunteers Action ‘s team expresses its deep gratitude  to its hundreds of friends through out the whole world!

We are glad to know that now, by giving  the men from St Vrach the chance to work, entertain and communicate with young people – NAVA volunteers, we are helping  them to be self-confident and positive to themselves and the whole society.
