Bulgarian as a second language

by Teach For Bulgaria/Zaedno v chas
Bulgarian as a second language

The goal was to raise funds for the development of a Bulgarian language teaching methodology and learning resources for primary school students whose mother tongue is not Bulgarian. Over 52,000 EUR were raised in only six months thanks to all donors. The goal of the campaign was exceeded. 

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development is also going to support the project by donating 50,000 EUR via their Community Initiative. This is possible thanks to our true supporter Nguyen Le, his colleagues at EBRD, and the fact that so many individual donors have been reached. We wanted to thank you for taking part in this campaign. People from all over the world participated with individual donations. 

We are very happy that our supporters organized their own fundraising initiatives and events in support of our campaign and in an attempt to get even more people involved. Many people demonstrated strong commitment and showed their support. This goes to show that this project is much needed and people have high expectations for it. 

In 2020 as part of this project we will be developing the following materials which will be used for language support in school for kids whose mother tongue is not Bulgarian: a diagnostics tool for determining the level of bulgarian language proficiency and the methodology and supporting materials for second grade students. 

We will also start working with public schools in the country in order to provide whole-school level support for integrating language support where it is most needed. 

As this project's activities will be continuing beyond 2020, into 2021 and 2022, fundraising for this project will also carry on. 

We hope you will stay on board with us and continue with your recurring donations! 

Thank you for believing in our cause!

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!

Thank you for your support for our project ''Bulgarian as a second language''. Your contribution will unable us to develop and disseminate a methodology for teaching Bulgarian language to students who have a different mother tongue. As a result you will help us fight the inequalities of the education system linked to this problem such as the high drop out rates of  students who find themselves in this situation as well as their failure to integrate into society. By continuing to support this project into 2020 you will be supporitng children of ethnic minority backgrounds in Bulgaria in their academic growth and social integration, ultimately presenting them with more opportunities for their future development. 

Thank you for believing in our cause! 

Best wishes from

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 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!
