It is planned to establish two hubs for functionally related social and educational services in support of children from vulnerable groups and their families in the municipalities of Maglizh and Nikolaevo for children 0-6 years and their parents.
Project: “Together today, together tomorrow – local communities in support of improved early childhood education and care”
The goal of the project is to improve the access to education, healthcare and social skills development for children aged 0-6 in Malko Tarnovo municipality who do not attend or do not have access to kindergarten or nursery, or live in isolated rural areas, urban and/or poor areas with a concentration of problems at risk of poverty, social exclusion and marginalization.
The aim of the scholarship program is to form a community of health professionals motivated and prepared to contribute to solving health problems in the Roma community and with the potential to become meaningful role models for Roma youth.
The main goal of the project is to improve the communication, resources and coordination at the local level in the implementation of health policies for marginalized communities by optimizing the health mediation system.
What do you do when a whole community struggles to access healthcare? In the 1990s the rates of tuberculosis infection were a hundred times higher amongst the Bulgarian Roma than in Western Europe. And many were dying of totally preventable diseases. The solution was to train up health mediators; members of the Roma community who act as a bridge between their neighbourhood, and doctors and the health system.
