The results of the activities described above are remarkable. Mental health and psychosocial support for children and their parents is available in a safe and secure learning environment. Children have equal access to inclusive and quality learning opportunities. Children, as well as teachers, have equal access to learning the Bulgarian language.

Children’s Center “Smiles for Ukraine” in the city of Varna is a free workshop for Ukrainian children, created by the “Dokova and Dokov for the Future” Foundation. The children’s center provides children with activities in a protected environment.

Here they communicate with their peers, and teachers provide appropriate activities and psychological support in order to reduce stress, improve their psychological state, develop their emotional intelligence and resilience.

Half-day classes are for children aged 3 to 10 in Ukrainian language, mathematics, art therapy, drawing, dancing, yoga, entertainment and lots of games. Bulgarian language lessons are also held, including for the youngest ones using a special methodology through games. For parents, therapy sessions are conducted by psychologists for the progress of each child.

We at the “Dokovi and Dokov for the Future” Foundation are happy that thanks to the funding provided for the “Smiles for Ukraine” Children’s Center, we were able to give another breath of hope to Ukrainian children and their parents and support their easier integration into society .
