Supporting Women who Suffered from Domestic Violence
Victims of domestic violence usually hide their faces – ashamed that they let that happen to them, being out of fear that they will be found and hurt again. How often do we come across them on the streets, at the grocery store, in the elevator, without suspecting what they have gone trough.
The exhibition of Yana Peneva from 6th to 8th March in Credo Bonum Gallery tries to show the chaos of thoughts and emotions of women, victims of violence, with whom specialists form PULSE Foundation work.
In the eve of International Women’s Day, 8th March, BeCause Foundation appeals for solidarity towards women suffered from domestic violence. Donate here

Single stepNational Research: Attitudes towards LGBT students
Over 50% from school’s personnel use offensive language against LGBTs. When hearing offensive language they do not react, do not signal; students who raise the issue about offensive language as a rule just receive advice to ignore. The problem is that people don’t recognize the offensive language as a problem. The support at school has to be at personal but also at administrative level.
„There are awards for teachers whose students win Olympics, but there are no awards for teacher who is a role model for philanthropic behavior”, shared during the presentation Trayan Trayanov from Together in Class Initiative. "The teacher is successful when students learn, but not when curriculum has just been followed.”
National research „Attitudes towards LGBT students in Bulgarian schools” was presented officially in Sofia on March 6th, 2020. The authors – Single Step Foundation and Bilitis Resource Centre – will share the results with the Ministry of Education. Among main recommendations from the research, in which 880 respondents 14-19 were participated are integrating the topic in school’s policies, as well working with teachers and directors, with students and parents.

Break the Silence: Sexual Exploitation and Sexual Violence of Children Could Happen Everywhere

Sofia, November 18, 2020

Break the Silence: November 18 is the European Day on protection of children against sexual exploitation and sexual violence.
The first thing that comes to mind when we hear ‘sexual exploitation’ is usually connected with red lanterns, streets or roads with women (and men) sex workers, trafficking of human beings. Sexual exploitation of children could have also other faces – sex services in exchange of expensive things such as smart phone or modern accessory or at the cost of a lunch, sweets or instead of rent for parents’ accommodation. It can happen via internet and to affect minors before they become teenagers. That’s why it is needed to break the silence and to ask for zero tolerance concerning this ugly phenomenon. Statistics show that one of five children becomes victim of violence, including sexual. As parents we can prevent this: we can teach them for instance on the Rule of the Bathing Suit. It says that no one has the right to touch their body, especially where the body is covered by a swimming bathing suit. Medical examinations and manipulations as well don’t have to be allowed without their informed consent. The rule helps children to understand that their bodies are their own, that there is good and bad touching, as well es personal borders and social ethnic norms.
