Inspired by the #BeTheChange workshop in Sofia, one of the participants, Darii Stanoilova, organized an English lesson for more than 40 Bulgarian and refugee children in 66 School in Sofia on 2 May 2018. The workshop was based on the Fairy tale English class methodology and miss Dari told the story The Three Little Pigs. The children improved their English, had fun together, strengthening the bonds between them.
Dari is an English teacher who has classes with children, students and adults. Her passion is working with kids between 5 and 10 years old. Depending on the group, she uses different methods. However, her favourite classes are “Fairytale English” when she tells a fairytale and together with the kids create something handmade related to the fairytale.

Our Multi Kulti Children’s Programme is running for a third 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 2018, the Multi Kulti Children’s Programme is supported by 1000 km Balkan Charity Challenge and private donations. Thank you!
The initiative is part of the Empowering Communities in Europe project is co-financed by the EU.
