Family-type home in Bozhurishte, Bulgaria
In CONCORDIA’s family-type house (FTH) in Bozhurishte children and youngsters without parental care find a safe and nurturing environment to grow up healthy and to develop their full potential. The premises offer space for 12 beneficiaries between 5 and 14 years.
In a family-like setting the children and youngsters are provided with emotional and psychosocial support, health care and access to quality education. Furthermore, they are equipped with necessary skills to prepare them to live independently later on through trainings on personal hygiene and health, cooking, housekeeping as well as financial literacy.
Social (re)integration is continuously envisaged, therefore the beneficiaries are placed close to their biological families, who for various reasons could not care for them anymore. Contact with parents and relatives is fostered, if in the best interest of the respective child/youngster.
The beneficiaries are regularly visiting school, attending extracurricular activities with peers and participating in public events of the local community. National and international volunteers are supporting the project, inter alia, by organizing leisure and sportive as well as creative activities for the children and youngsters.
