The war in Ukraine led each one of us devastated, ramped up uncertainty, and left us speechless. The Government of Bulgaria has taken its first steps to welcome Ukrainians fleeing the warzone. The response from civil society- self-organised volunteers, local businesses, and some local authorities, has been overwhelming. Endeavor Bulgaria, in partnership with the Ministry of Education and Science and Municipal Children’s Complex Varna, initiated and will finance a project that will provide educational support to the children from Ukraine who found refuge in Varna by engaging them in different extracurricular activities in the field of art and technology, led by experienced educators.
This project is looking also to promote a sustainable model of cooperation between the public and private sectors. The classes are already in progress and we hope that despite the psychosocial distress stemming from the conflict continuing to impact children, they will cope to achieve greater openness and confidence.
