During the period (November 27, 2018 – August 31, 2020) the fundraising campaign of the Bulgarian Library and Information Association (BLIA) for the project "Stimulating Early Childhood Reading in Bulgaria" collected $5,467,17 dollars from 42 donors. As a result of successful donation campaigns through the "GlobalGiving" platform (November 27, 2018 – August 31, 2020) and platform "Bulgaria donates" (March 25 – March 31, 2019), as well as the "RE:TURN" initiative (March 4 – 10, 2019) of the Foundation "America for Bulgaria" has raised over 10,000 BGN for the implementation of the project.

A total of 2,774 books and games for children from 1 to 6 years old have been purchased and donated to 14 pre-selected libraries in small and remote settlements in mountain and border regions with high child and parent attendance in their respective regions for 2017 and 2018:

  1. Alfatar, district Silistra – "Yordan Yovkov – 1894" Community Center
  2. Belogradchik, district Vidin – "Razvitie – 1893" Community Center
  3. Benkovski village, municipality Kirkovo,district Kardzhali – "Vazrajdane – 1928" Community Center
  4. Chiprovtsi, district Montana – "Peter Bogdan – 1909" Community Center
  5. Giovren village, municipality Devin, district Smolyan – "Svetlina – 1948" Community Center
  6. Kochan village, municipality Satovcha, district Blagoevgrad – "Prosveta – 1938" Community Center
  7. Novo selo village, municipality Novo selo, district Vidin – "Zemedelec – 1874" Community Center

  12. Startsevo village, municipality Zlatograd, district Smolyan – "Progres – 1939" Community Center
  13. Tryavna, district Gabrovo – "Pencho Slaveikov – 1871" Community Center
  14. Zverino village, municipality Mezdra, district Vratsa – "Fakel – 1926" Community Center

The books received under the project are presented to the local communities and arouse great interest among children and their parents. Different reading events, exhibitions and other initiatives with children and their parents were held in all libraries from November 2019 to August 2020. Some parents preferred to read to their children in the library on their own, including with the participation of the librarian. Others also chose books for home reading.

BLIA thanks all our colleagues, friends and supporters from Bulgaria, Europe and the USA who have donated funds up to now!

BLIA will continue to initiate and support initiatives in support of early childhood reading in the future. Information about this can be obtained on the website and on the Facebook profile of the association.
