Reverse your vision!

Reverse 1Sofia, June 3 2016

From the 3rd to the 17th of June in the Kristal Garden in Sofia you can see a special exhibition – “REVERSE YOUR VISION”. It’s dedicated to the Scholarship programme for Roma medical students which for a ninth year is giving the chance to young educated and highly motivated Roma young people to develop further their knowledge and professional experience in the field of healthcare.
The camera flips the images upside down, the same is with the human eye and our brain turns them around and puts them “right side up”. Prejudice is in our heads and they change the way we perceive the world.
Are we ready to reverse our concepts in order to “see people as they really are”?

Reverse 2The exhibition presents the participants in the Scholarship program – Roma students, their mentors, as well as people working on the program. It’s dedicated to them – future doctors, midwives, nurses, pharmacists, lab workers – people who make their dreams come true, achieve their goals and are not afraid of success. Because dreams have no boundaries, no matter one’s ethnicity, race and nationality. The stereotype is not the “real eye”. Let’s REVERSE OUR VISION and look upon those young people unprejudiced and see them for who they are!

The program is implemented with the support of the Open Society Institute and the Roma education fund. The Open Society Institute- Sofia, Ïntelday” Foundation and the “Amalipe” Center are responsible for its implementation in Bulgaria. BFPA supports the mentorship component of the project, integral part of which are our experts Prof. Juliana Marinova, Prof. Ivailo Turnev, Dr. Radosveta Stamenkova and Dr. Krasimir Romanov.

Most significant change: Documenting stories

Dolna Banya, January 24-26, 2020

On January 26-28 BFPA organized a meeting of the teams working on the project „My body, my rights” from Sofia, Yambol and Montana. Representatives of the three locations shared their experiences from the implemented field activities. We discussed problems which health mediators, self-help group members and their partners face and paid special attention on possible ways and strategies for solving. Participants put accent on good practices that had been identified up to the moment. It was the perfect time to watch and discuss several videos, showing the fieldwork as well as image “memes” with messages, which show benefits of family planning.
Participants gave feedback also for the freshly prepared Manual for self-support groups and for the Health application for mobile devices, which will be useful in the future work on the project and after its ending. Divided into groups by locations the participants from Sofia, Yambol and Montana worked on possible ways of documenting stories for the most significant change of people’s lives as result of the work of project teams and health specialists.
