Dear supporters,

With a cinema debut in Paris at the beginning of July and a festival premiere at the “Meetings of the Young European Cinema” in Sofia, Daniel and his students from Elementary school “Neofit Riliski”, Dermantsi presented their first short film “9+1”. The film was created in 2018, as part of an initiative of Cinémathèque Française - “Cinema, a hundred years of youth”. The students worked on this project for a whole school year with the support of their English teacher Daniel, participant in the Teach for Bulgaria leadership program. The two premieres were very well received by the audience and were extremely emotional as they marked the culmination of lots of hard work and learning through different cinema tools and experiences.

"This initiative allowed the students to find new talents and interests. These children have almost no access to arts. During the work process, they gained a deeper understanding of their creative, emotional and artistic talents which are a window to their personal self-awareness and self-development.", says Daniel.

Thank you for your engagement with our cause. Your commitment allows more people, like Daniel, to become inspiring teachers and leaders. With your support, we help more children to have an equal access to quality education. Please consider becoming our recurring donor now and your support could be even more valuable. Every new recurring donation during GlobalGiving’s 2018 Youth week campaign, August 6-12th will be matched! Join our group of recurring donors now, and your yearly donation will be double-matched by our generous supporter Bogomil Balkansky.

TFB Summer Academy 2018 Update

Dear supporters,

We're thrilled to kick off the 8th annual Summer Academy in just a couple of weeks, on July 30th! Thanks to your generosity and engagement, we've been able to provide free access to the academy for children from grades 1-12. This year we will again welcome students in Lyulin and Mladost - two of Sofia's biggest neighborhoods. We expect more than 950 students and many of them would be part of the academy for second or third year. In this regard I would like to share with you some of the things which Nedelina /mother of a child which was part of the academy last year/ said:

"I want to share some of the things that my child have learned during the academy. The first time my daughter took part in the academy was 2 years ago. She was in 5th grade and geography was (and still is) her favorite subject. There was a child with disabilities in her class and the teacher instructed my daughter how she could be in help with the lessons. The results were unbelievable. The child improved its knowledge and my daughter was provoked to be interested in problems of the children with disabilities.

Another great benefit for my daughter was in history lessons - in general she doesn't like them. But now this is changed. The teacher from TFB program used methods that changed her attitude to the subject and she decided to participate in a history contest. She wanted to see how her changed attitude reflected in her knowledge. That's why I admire everything that TFB teachers and the entire TFB team do!”

With your support we help more children to have an equal access to quality education and more of our participants to do their best.

Thank you!
