Our Multi Kulti Children’s Programme continues on 11 May 2017 with an exciting visit of the National Museum of Natural History in Sofia and a fun nature workshop with Bio games. Roma and refugee children from Syria and Iraq learned tons of new facts while playing together, wandering in the museum and and making new friends!

We’d like to thank Bio games and Caritas Sofia.

Our Multi Kulti Children’s Programme is running for a second year. It aims at bringing together Bulgarian and migrant/refugee children in order to overcome social barriers while participating in cultural, educational and sport events. Children and youth between the ages of 6 and 18 have the opportunity to get to know each other in a safe informal environment, to increase their knowledge and improve their skills, to have fun and create common memories and friendships. The Programme has been actively supporting the two-way integration and building bridges between different cultures thus enabling children to live in a community free from prejudice, discrimination and xenophobia.

In 2017 the Multi Kulti Children’s Programme is supported by TELUS International Europe, 1000 km Balkan Charity Challenge and private donations. Thank you!
