With a bike to school
Could Svishtov be like Amsterdam?
 
From the new school year students from Svishtov will be able to use their bikes as basic means of transport, doing sports and amusing themselves simultaneously. 22 stands for 5 bikes each have been installed in all schools, and in different places in town.
 
Tsvetina Geneva and the Student Council of “Dimitar Blagoev” Secondary School dreamed of a greener town with active young people. They are the winners of the first edition of the competition for a noble student initiative – “Young Benefactor”. There is no public transport in Svishtov and the students are taken to school mostly by car. The reason is that so far there was nowhere for them to park their bicycles. There are stands now installed in different places in the town, and what is more, a bicycle ride will be organized in order to popularize the active way of living. The bike stands were provided by Blagotvoritel Foundation due to the generosity of its donors.

The next competition will be announced on October 1st 2017. The aim of Blagotvoritel Foundation is to encourage students to become volunteers, show creativity and develop their own projects for implementation of their chosen cause, which would benefit their community.
