On 15 September from 11:00 until 13:00 hours our clients with intellectual difficulties will be teaching children and their parents how to make beautiful paper flower in front of the Greenwich Book Centre in 37 Vitosha Boulevard. This will mark our participation in the joint initiative Old Paper for New Books of the Metropolitan Municipality and the Greenwich Book Centre. The promise of the organisers is that each child who brings an adult carrying 5 kg of old paper will receive a book of their choice.
You can now listen to our new radio spot featuring Ani, Ivan, Victor and Radi – an idea that we could translate into a reality within the framework of the project 'Living Together – active participation of people with intellectual difficulties in the cultural life of the metropolis' owing to the financial support of the Metropolitan Municipality of Sofia under the Europe 2013 Programme.
On 20 October 2012 MARIA'S WORLD FOUNDATION raised BGN 7,090 at a charitable birthday party at Sofia's Lime Light piano bar. This amount was doubled to BGN 14,181 by one of the founders of the Foundation Mr. Grozdan Karadjov. The generous donation will finance Maria's World Day Care Centre for people with intellectual disabilities.
The fundraising event took place during the celebration dedicated to the birthday of Tsetska Radeva, Executive Director and Founder of MARIA'S WORLD Foundation. The lovely host had earlier invited the guests to show their support for the Foundation by making small donations instead of following the time-honoured tradition of giving presents. Before her close friends Mrs. Radeva spoke about the decision to set up the foundation and shared her deep conviction of the importance of its mission to improve the quality of life of people with intellectual disabilities, enable their meaningful integration in society and the expand the possibilities available to them to achieve their full potential.
