How to Feed the Earth, or Bulgarian and Refugee Children Learn How to Compost Together
Our Multi Kulti Children’s Programme continued on 30 May 2017 with a composting workshop hosted by Irena Sabeva from Our Neighborhood Association as part of the Spring celebration in 163 School in Sofia. Bulgarian and refugee children from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan learned more about the organic waste and its role in enriching the soil. After a short demonstration on the composting process children were invited to decorate their own plastic cups and plant some herbs to bring home.
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.
