OAK LogoPresentationSliven, May 18-20, 2017
Lovech, May 31 - June 2, 2017

Sliven, “Sava Dobroplodni” city library – May 18-20 2017, Lovech, “Presidium” Hotel – May 31 – June 2, 2017. A joint effort of  BFPA, BPID – the Bulgarian Platform for International Development, Centre for Inclusive Education (CIE), UN Youth Club, Gender Education, Research and Technologies Foundation (GERT) and Global Libraries. We educate the librarians from libraries and community centres (chitalishta) first from North, then from South Bulgaria in the field of global education, in the context of UN’s sustainable development goals. Our part – BFPA’s task, is mainly in the field of health education, interactive teaching techniques, equal opportunities.

ParticipantsWe talk about global education, gender, health and sexuality education, ecology, international cooperation and development policies and other important subjects, all in global context. 
Libraries, community centres and the specialists working there are an insufficiently used resource. They have to keep their role of nowadays enlighteners. So called “Library lessons” as a form of extracurricular activities and an instrument for attitude change are a valuable resource, therefore should be utilized. Also, the sharing of interactive educational methods was highly appreciated. In both places “our”, BFPA sessions were the most popular ones – we talked about communication, social norms and stereotypes, and also specifics – hygiene, how infections reach the organism, prevention, puberty and growing up,  violence and sexual exploitation, addictions. As people of the written word and guardians of the books, the participants liked our materials a lot. We will continue working together.

How we celebrate the day of love and wine

Sofia-Pleven, February 14, 2018

BFPA traditionally supports different events which mark Feb 14 – the day of people in love and of wine. This is a good day also to talk about prevention, especially with the mood of forthcoming spring and rejuvenation. Valentine gifts go traditionally well with a condom and a health-related message. That is why on Valentine’s day in Pleven our partners – the young people from the Association of medical students held a campaign in the city centre and the shopping malls. They presented a selection of BFPA’s informational materials together with Sexwell condoms as a part of our Condom with a cause/Use your head campaign. Everyone had the opportunity to take a photo in a special big Valentine photo-frame.  
Along with such traditional, yet joyful events at different locations all over the country, BFPA proudly presents the second article from the series, elaborated in cooperation with the “Hope against AIDS” foundation in the AIDS Press blog. The first article came out on an important date for prevention of HIV prevalence – December 1st. It’s logical to continue with the second article on another important date. The subject is more than fundamental – the narrative concerns the 37-year-long history of AIDS in Bulgaria and is about the communication deficiencies and how they affect the correct understanding and dissemination of information which leads to misunderstanding and problems.
