OAK LogoAssignmentSofia, September 7-9 2015

The second interactive training organized by OAK Foundation for NGO grantees from East Europe took place in 7-9 September in Vitosha Park Hotel, Sofia. BFPA is among the 15 organizations included in the project taking participation in the child rights capacity building initiative. A pilot group of NGOs is being trained in parallel from the region of East Africa. This year the project is enlarging including into the training two new groups of organizations from the same regions.
From 2014 the NGOs from Bulgaria, Latvia, Moldova and Poland are working in a network and uniting their efforts in developing strategies and visions concerning six main principles for working with children.

The participants in the training from the European region gathered for the second time in Sofia. Lectors and facilitators of the interactive exercises from the international child-rights agency Child to Child worked with the two groups simultaneously and leaded their efforts into thinking on theoretical structuring of the principles and applying them into the basic documents of each organization, as well to implementation into practice of their activities with focus on child participation.
The projects coordinator Ralitsa Zgalevska and youth projects coordinator Boyan Mladenov from BFPA took participation in the work of both groups.

Romeo and Juliet from Kosharnik district

Montana, September 12, 2019

The Shakespeare and Servantes tour around the Roma neighborhoods of Bulgaria went to the Kosharnik district of Montana. Talented and enthusiastic local children, selected by the Roma actress Natalia Tzekova presented fragments of the drama “Romeo and Juliet” from a newer angle and with adequate health messages. The aim of the social theatre is with the means of art to inform the public in a comprehensible manner about the harm of early marriages and early school drop outs, the benefits of contraception, the importance of prevention of sexually transmitted infections. The messages target young people as well as their parents, some of which joined the scenes to demonstrate their support for what their children are saying. With his monologue about the Roma Don Quixote Valeri Lekov, also part of the production team, explained some of the community specificities. Between the sketches there were “real life” scenes – a woman from the community visits a doctor who explains the benefits of contraception and debunks some “fake news” about contraceptive methods – all this with a lot of humour and highly appreciated by the audience.
