Group photoSofia, April 7-8 2016

On April 7–8 – the day of commemoration of the Roma who died during the Holocaust, the Roma medical students and their mentors gathered for a meeting in Sofia, organized by the Open Society Institute. The meeting started with the launch of the short film “Dreamroads”, showing a snapshot of the RHSP in Bulgaria. The film was shot at the end of August during the advocacy camp of the students in Veliko Turnovo. You can see students, their mentors and some events from the main components of the program – scholarship, mentorship, advocacy and media publicity. BFPA is one of the organizations that supported the making and dissemination of the film - you can see our logo at the end. Under the article there is a link to the film uploaded on You Tube with English subtitles.

At the meeting BFPA was represented by four mentors - Professor Juliana Marinova and Associate Professor Boriana Parashkevova from Stara Zagora, Dr. Radosveta Stamenkova from Sofia and Dr. Krassimir Romanov form Pleven - all of them are integral and important part of the mentorship program. Part of the meeting was dedicated to a training on how to use social media for popularization of social causes. The participants had the pleasure of watching the film “Bread and shows” by Jackie Stoev, Johnny Penkov and Charlie Iliev about the Roma district in Kyustendil. On April 10 at 4p.m. on the Bulgarian National Television was the premiere of “Jackie, Johnny and Charlie are not dog names” – a film about the three great entertainers and film-makers that refuse to grow up, made by the director Nikola Boshnakov, who is also the editor of the film about Kyustendil. After the showing of “Bread and shows” the participants had the even greater pleasure of meeting in person Charlie and Nikola Boshnakov who answered all their questions and were a great source of positivism and good mood.
