On a Swing for the first time

On a Swing for the first time
To ride a bike for the first time, to skate for the first time on the rink…Every new experience is both exciting and somewhat scary. That’s what happened to Ivelina. Yesterday she nestled on a swing for the first time. A special swing, tailor-made for her. This is a story with a happy end.

Ivelina and the other kids and youths from the Social Care Complex “St. St. Constantine and Helena” in Plovdiv will have a exciting summer due to the enthusiasm and commitment of Anita and Kristiana from the Trade High School in Plovdiv. And also thanks to all donors, who believed in their project and supported them. The two girls were semi-finalists in the competition “Young Benefactor” 2016. Although they ranked second, we supported their project with a campaign for purchase of special swing for children with disabilities. The sum of 2950 leva, raised during a DMS campaign (donor messages based), private donations and school events, the swing was purchased, and the team of Adapt BG supplied it and assembled it free of charge. The director of the complex, Mrs. Vateva allowed other children with disabilities from the same neighbourhood to be using the swing.

We are grateful to all thanks to whom today Ivelina and her friends discover something new and so exciting!

The next edition of the competition will be held in October 2017.
