Bulgarian and Refugee Kids have Fun, Jump Around and Climb @ Funtopia
Kids often have so much energy that parents find it difficult to help them use it positively – especially during summer. That’s why, on 24 July 2017 about 15 refugee and Bulgarian children had the opportunity to have fun in Funtopia You can see them jumping, climbing and making new friends while becoming stronger and more capable.
We’d like to thank our partners Funtopia България and Refugee-Migrant Service of the Bulgarian Red Cross!

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.
