CVS Bulgaria has established a cooperation with the National Association of Therapeutic Horse Riding and Hippotherapy. The aim of the association is to help children with special needs through hippotherapy treatment sessions.
The sessions will take place on Khan Asparuh Race Course (located on Haidushko izvorche street, next to the ice ring of “Slavia” stadium) on Wednesday and Friday from 15:30 to 17:30, as well as on Saturday from 10:30 to 12:00.
Therefore CVS Bulgaria is looking for volunteers, who will be able to support the hippotherapist’s work. Before undertaking their duties, the volunteers will participate in a training introducing them to the specific characteristics of the work. The children undergoing the treatment suffer from different diseases such as celebral palsy, Down syndrome, mental diseases and other motor difficulties. During the sessions the kids will be accompanied by one or both of their parents.
The project will last 3 months and frequent attendance will be expected from the volunteers.
If there is a mutual interest, the project might be prolonged.
We would like to start work as soon as possible! So, if you are above the age of 18, with a strong sense of responsibility and discipline, and most of all – if being tolerant towards differences and accept them, you are willing to work with children with special needs, you can send us an application and CV on with the following subject: Hippotherapy volunteer.
A more detailed description of the work, as well as an application form you can find below.
