PresentationSofia, May 16, 2019

On May 16 2019 in the new Cultura cinema, the Informational Portal for the Non-Governmental organizations in Bulgaria handed out its annual awards for a ninth consecutive year.
Georgi Genchev, leader of the NGO Portal team, elaborated: “The awards are a kind of transparency certificate, because the Portal gives the civil society organizations the opportunity to inform a wide audience regularly about their activities and achievements, to tell what they do, for whom it is important and what change they achieve. To state transparently their position on questions important for the society, to advocate and defend the rights of the people with and for whom they work.”
The awards of the Portal have no nominations and jury. The winners are selected among the Portal’s registered users based on site administrator statistics for each category. The total number of user publications for 2018 is over 1700.

The profiles contain information about which field the organization works in, who manages it, what are its activities, contact information and also the materials it posted in the Portal.
One of the most popular segments of the NGO Portal is “Work and Volunteering” in which in 2018 a total of 140 career announcements were published – for work, internships, volunteering. In the “Most read Portal announcement” is decided which organizations have attracted the biggest interest towards their announcement.

The Learning action partnership was introduced to Safenet’s Cyber Scout Programme

Sofia, August 24, 2020

“I’m a 15-year old boy, in the ninth grade. Recently I met a girl in the social networks. After chatting a few days in Skype, we turned on cameras, send saucy pictures…. Now it transpires the girl is not a girl at all, I was recorded and being blackmailed, for money, for more pictures, otherwise the recordings will be made widely public. What do I do to get out of this situation?”
Another case:
“I’m in the sixth grade. A classmate who is a Facebook friend of our history teacher downloaded her picture and made her a professional profile in a porn site. What do I do, how do I react?”
The two cases are just a small part of the one-day training on the Cyber Scout programme for internet safety and online security for the members of the Learning action partnership (LAP). We talked about online bullying, online sexual exploitation, about the ways we should react, what rules apply, what is allowed and effective… We review different cases – from a threat from a pedophile regarding the security of a child to an innocent at first exchange between friends which escalates to online harassment that can have serious and long-term consequences for the victim’s life and mentality.
