For 30 years we have been supporting children at an early age to get the best chance for life and development in a family.
For every third child in Bulgaria, life is difficult, and for his family - a challenge. Thousands of children still have no family and live in hospitals, social institutions or temporary accommodation centers.
29 years after our establishment and over 16,000 changed human destinies, we at the For Our Children Foundation continue to be where we are needed - in maternity wards when mothers are vulnerable and insecure in dealing with the care of their children; in foster families who unlock their hearts for orphans; in our centers in Sofia and Plovdiv, where we help children to take their first steps, to say their first words, to overcome their fears and traumas; where their families become calmer and more confident - because they already know that with our support they can be the best parents for their children.
We believe in the capabilities of the children and families we help and explore their needs. We encourage parents to overcome the challenges facing the child, to provide support and security for them to develop their full potential.
Active social work, psychological support and mobilization of various specialists around each child are our key approaches to help families get out of a situation of vulnerability and cope with the difficulties in their lives.
Our ultimate goal is for the child to live in a safe and secure environment and for the family to receive support to ensure this.
We transformed the building of the former baby’s institution "St. Sofia” to create a special place for young children and their families. The Early Childhood Development Complex unites various centers for work with children and parents, in which they receive comprehensive social, psychological and material support. Here children with disabilities and difficulties discover the new world - the one that is full of opportunities! Learn more
Our dream for the children and families of Plovdiv is about to come true in a few months. In the building of the former “Rada Kirkovich” Social Institution, the first orphanage in Bulgaria, we will open an Early Childhood Development Complex, where we will support young children and their families to be confident, to live in a safe environment and to unlock their potential.
