The training under the project “Together with our Children” started

In February 2018, parents’ training for the project “Together with our Children” of the Future for Children Association started. There were a total of four meetings with parents in the Edelweiss Kindergarten and Slanchitse Kindergarten – partners of the project. The parents from the two kindergartens had the opportunity to meet with Maya Momchilova – a psychologist at the Center for Community Support and to talk to her about Positive Parenthood. The meetings were attended by over 50 parents who actively participated in the topic.

Two activities for children and parents have been implemented since the beginning of the year. In January, we put posters for positive parenting in the two kindergartens. The parents finished of the sentence “I love you because …” and sent us happy pictures together with their little ones.

In February, colorful workshops for martenitsas were made, involving children and parents to create martenisas together.

In the coming months, there are still many different activities for children and parents planned. Two more meetings of the parents with specialists are being organized.

The project “Together with our Children” is being implemented thanks to Lidl, Bulgaria. “You and Lidl for a Better Life” is the largest socially responsible initiative in partnership with the Workshop for Citizens’ Initiatives Foundation and the Bulgarian Donors’ Forum.

The “You and Lidl for a Better Life” initiative aims to support socially significant projects across the country. The initiative reflects the company’s drive to contribute to a more complete and better quality life for people in different regions. The goal of “Together with our Children” is to create a positive supportive environment for children by promoting parent-child communication and active interactions of kindergarten and family.

Thanks for the good partnership and the participation of children and parents!
