Today the Bulgarian School of Politics “Dimitry Panitza” (BSoP) started accepting applications from its graduates from all classes for a training under the project “For a home away from home – development of the capacity of civic leaders to help and support refugees in Bulgaria”. One of the goals of the project is to give new knowledge and skills to civil leaders and experts who graduated from the School’s National Program to provide assistance and support to refugees and migrants in Bulgaria. The project also envisages building a network of people, part of the large BSoP alumni network, to exchange ideas and good practices, to cooperate and help solve the problems of refugees and migrants in our country.
In order to achieve the goals, the BSoP will select twenty people from those who expressed a desire to join and will analyze their training needs. On the basis of all this, the program for the three-day training, which is planned to be held in December in Borovets, will be prepared. The participants in the training will also be able to exchange working good practices and models with each other, share problems for which they, as professionals, are looking for a solution.
Project “For a home away from home – development of the capacity of civic leaders to help and support refugees in Bulgaria” is implemented by BSoP with the financial support provided by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway under the EEA Financial Mechanism. Its main objective is to find sustainable forms of support for refugees and to build mechanisms to respond to refugee crises.
