Earlier Projects with CVS Bulgaria

Take a Look Around

From January to June 2007 CVS-Bulgaria, with BlueLinks’ support and financial help from State Agency YOUTH, realized the project Take a Look Around which main goal was popularizing of the voluntary services and activities in Bulgaria.
The project took place in six cities throughout the country and was carried out by some of the most active CVS’ volunteers, supported by the head of the project.

The project itself consisted of:

  • informative meetings with youths and organizations;
  • one-day voluntary activities;
  • organizing of workcamps;
  • adding new youths and organizations to the CVS’ mailing-list.

The last stage of the project was the making of different statistics summing up the achieved results. This was very important for planning the future CVS’ activities for spreading the voluntary service’s idea in Bulgaria.
Many of the participants in the project are now active volunteers and take part in Bulgarian and European projects, workcamps and other initiatives.
