Adopt a Neighborhood Bulgaria Campaign was started in the fall of 2018, shortly after the opening of Metro World Child - Bulgaria, as an implementing organization for our educational programs in the country. Changing a Generation maintains its overseeing rights to all projects and is the sole financial sponsor to Metro World Child - Bulgaria. We utilize the children's curriculum from Metro World Child in Brooklyn, NY in joined partnership with their international outreach programs.
We work with four local partnering churches and non-profits in the regions of Sofia, Veliko Turnovo, Ruse and Burgas. Our team consists of about 100 volunteers who work weekly in establishing relationships with the children and their families, as well as conducting educational outreach programs in 20 neighborhoods within these regions.
Remodeling six kindergartens within these neighborhoods (fresh paint, carpet, roofing, furniture and new toys for the kids)
Building six new playgrounds (we already opened the first four in 2019 & 2020) in the areas where we conduct weekly outreaches ($4000 - $5000 per playground/price varies according to location)
Providing PJ's, shoes, winter coast and boots for the children in our programs (throughout the year)
Summer camps for our sponsored children ($120/per child)
Special tours to other historical towns, the Black Sea or the zoo as rewards for the kids who have attended faithfully the program
Providing road pavement in 5 neighborhoods
Remodeling two buildings for after-school-programs
Sidewalk truck that becomes a stage for our weekly outreaches
or come and build with us
As a partner you will receive a packet with information and pictures of the children and the neighborhood you will be supporting. Each month we will provide updates through our partner's letters and newsletters.
Ways to Get Involved
We offer individuals, churches and business companies the opportunity to partner with us in practical ways as we meet the needs of the people living in some of the most deprived areas of Bulgaria.
