„Condom with a Cause” with a Video to Support Health

Sofia, April 11, 2018

The campaign for responsible sexual behavior of the Bulgarian Family Planning and Sexual Health Association (BFPA) and Sexwell condoms “Condom with a Cause” (in BG) continues fundraising for buying quick tests, testing and counseling people in need. The launch of a video aiming to attract and engage more people to support the cause took place on April 11, 2018.
The only way to prevent ourselves from sexual transmitted infections and to save our reproductive system is to have responsible sexual behavior.  

                                                         

The campaign started in the beginning of the last year and is a part of the efforts of the two partners to contribute Bulgaria to stay among countries with low HIV prevalence. Up to the moment in the frame of the campaign were presented interviews with medical specialists and people supporting the cause showing different points of view and sharing knowledge on health issues important for everyone and especially for young people.
We from BFPA and SEXWELL consider that sexuality and pleasant intimate experience are important to anyone and the health is invaluable. And we are convinced they must go together!

The benefits of having a young intern for a week

Sofia, October 1-5, 2018

During the week from October 1st to October 5th Lina Fadl, a 15 year old schoolgirl from the Victor Hugo French Lycee in Sofia took her internship with us at BFPA’s Sofia office. In the photo Lina is with her back to the camera, since she doesn’t like to be photographed, but her Biology teacher, who visited us to see how things are happening, can be seen well. It was a great joy for our team to be reinforced by someone with a fresh outlook and thinking. As always in such cases, the benefits were mutual – Lina learned from us how is functioning of a non-government organization, how to elaborate project proposals,  how to budget and report them, how to go on when your project proposal isn’t approved, why a Pap-smear is important, why besides HIV testing, counseling and support for people coming in for VCT is especially important, how and why to use educational playing cards, which other organizations are working in the field of education and healthcare, what socially responsible business means, and much more.
