Child Rights Capacity Building Training

OAK LogoAssignmentSofia, September 7-9 2015

The second interactive training organized by OAK Foundation for NGO grantees from East Europe took place in 7-9 September in Vitosha Park Hotel, Sofia. BFPA is among the 15 organizations included in the project taking participation in the child rights capacity building initiative. A pilot group of NGOs is being trained in parallel from the region of East Africa. This year the project is enlarging including into the training two new groups of organizations from the same regions.
From 2014 the NGOs from Bulgaria, Latvia, Moldova and Poland are working in a network and uniting their efforts in developing strategies and visions concerning six main principles for working with children.

The participants in the training from the European region gathered for the second time in Sofia. Lectors and facilitators of the interactive exercises from the international child-rights agency Child to Child worked with the two groups simultaneously and leaded their efforts into thinking on theoretical structuring of the principles and applying them into the basic documents of each organization, as well to implementation into practice of their activities with focus on child participation.
The projects coordinator Ralitsa Zgalevska and youth projects coordinator Boyan Mladenov from BFPA took participation in the work of both groups.

Monday, June 17th. Our first alumni class of the Sofia Health Education Academy demonstrated their skills and knowledge in front of classmates, teachers, school directors, school psychologists, parents and supporting institutions. The solemn event took place in the Events Hall at 1st High school, Sofia. The young people from 1st, 144th, 119th schools, 1st ELS and the Professional School of Textile and Fashion Design split into three teams after “drawing straws” and presented the topics “Transformations During Puberty”, “Contraception and STIs” and “Prevention of addictions”. We are very glad that our video on puberty was part of the “fun”. Otherwise the presentations pushed the audience to participate actively. The culmination was a surprise for all – we were visited by the TV show “Masters of the air” who enhanced the effect of the challenge.
