Happy Holidays from Teach for Bulgaria!

 

Dear friends and supporters of Teach For Bulgaria,

We wish you happy holidays and a great new 2020!

 Let it be full of peace, prosperity and inspiration! Only by joining our efforts we can work towards providing quality education for every child in Bulgaria and we are excited to continue doing so in 2020! Thank you for your support for our project ''Free Summer Academy for 500 Bulgarian Children'' through which we provide free summer education to 500 kids from low income communities in Sofia who have less opportunities to compensate their academic deficiencies. Thanks to your support we are able to show them that learning can be fun and motivate them to achieve better results. 

Thank you for believing in our cause! 

Best wishes from

Teach For Bulgaria Team

In Pursuit Of Happiness

“Children can’t choose where they are born, they can’t choose their family, and how they are raised, so they shouldn’t be labelled because of choices that they didn’t really make,” Evelina

Dear supporters,

Thank you so much for believeing in the cause for equal access to quality education for every child! For us, people are the key for sustainable change in the society.

Today, we are going to present to you one of the TFB teachers who has completely changed her life.

Less than two years ago Evelina’s daily routine reflected her lifestyle of an average corporate employee. She got up, went to the office, came back home after a typical uneventful 8-hour work day, and went to bed only to do it all over again the following morning. After years of school and university education, multiple additional qualifications and certificates, Evelina thought she was expected to find a “prestigious job”, work at a “fancy office”, and make lots of money. So she met these expectations, but then found herself emotionally drained and daydreaming of a career U-turn.

The Tipping Point

“I gathered my thoughts and decided that life was too short to live according to someone else’s expectations,” Evelina shared while she talked about her career U-turn.

“I decided it was time for me to finally do something which would bring joy and satisfaction to my life, especially when I see the results of my hard work. I was looking for something more than just a job; a source of inspiration which could motivate me to do my best – with pleasure, not because I had to,” Evelina added.

Applying for Teach For Bulgaria’s program was an impulsive decision back then, but Evelina was certain that it pointed her in the right direction. Once she was accepted, Evelina started her journey with Teach For Bulgaria and is more than happy she found her true passion.

London calling TFB supporters

Dear TFB supporters, 

We sincerely thank you for contributing to our project Bulgarian as a second language. Without you, the efforts towards developing a methodology for teaching Bulgarian to non-native speakers would not be possible!  

In a gesture of gratitude, we would like to invite you to come and celebrate this project with us and also help us raise more awareness about the dangers of not understanding the language of your classroom. We want more people to be able to recognize the link between the high dropout rates in Bulgarian classrooms and the lack of functional and practical Bulgarian language training tools. 

Come and join us for a thought-provoking quiz night in December 2019 in London, UK! 

If you would like to attend this event please Register here.

If you would like to find out more about our ambassador Nguyen Le, thanks to whom the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (via its Community Initiative) has agreed to support our efforts for this project, please visit this page.

Thank you for helping us fight the inequalities of the education system in Bulgaria! Without your support, long-term change would be impossible!
