Creative workshops

Dear Friends,

Along with the ongoing educational activities we always try to organize creative ones as well. During the winter season kids do not spend enough time outside. Therefore, we used the sunny days and, together with our partners, organized some events. The funniest one was the Kite making workshop. All the kids created their own kites. Since the event was also part of the Refugee Month, we encouraged the children to decorate their kites with messages of tolerance and acceptance.

What is winter without Christmas? The kids were so excited to participate in the Xmas card-making workshop, they learned new techniques and designed amazing greeting cards, tree ornaments and decorations.

The cookie workshop was a great activity for an unexpected holiday at the end of January. For the first time they tried the special recipe for butter cookies.

We started a new activity

Dear Friends,

In September the kids have started the new school year. Some of them were really excited because this is their first year at school while the others couldn’t wait to meet again their schoolmates and share with them their summer adventures.

Thanks to donations we will continue to carry out the Afterschool program. Together with all ongoing activities, we have started a group for development of social skills. It was designed for the kids aged 12 to 15 who have behavioral problems and difficulties communicating with their classmates. The main aims of the group are to encourage the kids to build self-confidence and self-esteem, to learn how important is to be respectful of others and to treat them in a good way. Through various role plays, different types of exercises and activities they will explore how they participate in different social situations, how they collaborate with the others and what is their place in their class, in their group of friends. Also, we hope that all the group activities will help them to communicate better with their families.

Summer Club News

Here in Bulgaria, the children have 10 – 14 weeks for summer holidays depending on which grade they are in. Usually this is the happiest time of the year abound with new experiences, opportunities to make new friends, play, create memories and develop essential social skills. But for underprivileged children the school holidays are impoverished period of isolation, boredom, and inactivity.

Your kind donation secured the Summer Club as a part of our Afterschool program. This summer we are providing 25 children with safe summer activities that support their personal and academic growth.

Thanks to long-term partnerships with different organizations we sent 11 children aged 10 – 16 to two different mountain camps for a week. There they did various activities such as swimming, hiking, rock climbing,riding, making arts and enjoying campfires.

Educational activities in the Summer Club continue till 15th of September.
