Our Multi Kulti Children’s Programme continued on 9 October 2017 with a robotics workshop hosted by Robopartans as part of the initiative Meet and Code in Sofia. 25 Bulgarian and refugee children from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan learned more about the robots made from Lego, how to make and control them and discussed what’s the future of robotics and coding.

We’d like to thank 163 School, Robopartans, 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.

This event became possible thanks to Workshop for Civic Initiatives Foundation, SAP, TechSoup Europe in the framework of the Meet and Code initiative.
