2021

Spring charity bazaar was a great success with over 100 children and young people participating from 11 centres. The bazaar was outside and provided a wonderful day to look forward to for many of the children.  It was also supported by the local municipality.

ZOV won another award for the garden at the crisis centres and all sports and recreational activities. This award was given by the Child protection agency in recognition of good practice and excellent partnerships.

“Congratulations to the friends from ZOV and of course to the girls! With care and responsibility, change is achievable and great”, Rositsa Dimitrova, Head of Social Department in VT Municipality

NEW PROJECT: Crisis Centre for Women and Children

We have started working with a new centre for women and child at risk   Each session is a good opportunity to bring people together, with ZOV staff using occupational therapy models to improve everyday living.  Many of the sessions we do are creative to encourage communication – the things we have made include painting glass bottles, knitting and making necklaces

COVID – 19 Update

As Bulgaria entered another lockdown in November 2020 ZOV staff have been given special permission to continue working in the centre’s delivering key services and support to the staff and children and young people we work with. As the Mentoring and Outreach project is delivered by volunteers it is currently online.
