At the end of April this year CVS-Bulgaria took part in the largest service event in the world – Global Youth Service Day. Established in 1988, GYSD is now celebrated in over 100 countries. It encourages children and youth to get involved in the world’s most critical issues and to improve the communities they are part of.
This year the Global Youth Service Day coincided with the Earth Day (the 22nd of April). A Mini Grant Competition for an ecological event was held among organizations from South-Eastern Europe and CVS-Bulgaria became one of the five winners with its project “Use imagination – the world is your creation!”. The event was intended to emphasize the importance of reusing materials and it was directed at kids from “St. Ivan Rilski” Public institution for children. A group of nine volunteers prepared a workshop and together with the kids created different kinds of interesting and funny objects – flowers made of straws, pencil holders made of used jars and decorated with dough. A little table was decorated with old newspapers as well. At the end of the workshop volunteers and kids played games together and everyone had fun.
