The day before Christmas Eve provided further proof of public generosity and kindness in support of those in need! Today’s kind deed came from members of the younger generation – high school students from 12th class at the National School of Arts “Prof. V. Stoyanov ” where there is a tradition of support for Equilibrium.
Equilibrium is one of three organizations across the country currently selected by the Iris Donation Programme to receive funding for its BGN 20,000 project to provide support to vulnerable children and their families affected by COVID-19
The programme is providing funding to Equilibrium for the second time as a sign of its appreciation for its contribution to the life and health of vulnerable children through the implementation of its first project “Sustainable Families”. Within a period of 5 months the…
In June, Equilibrium launched a new project ′′ Sustainable Families ′′ with the financial support of the IRIS Program. The project supported a total of 74 families where there is a risk of crisis – potential for removing children from their homes and a need to preserve the psycho-emotional state of families and improve their awareness to protect against Coronavirus. The selection of the families was carried out on the basis of analysis and assessment of the individual…
However, a few women from Equilibrium’s social service continued to work despite significant personal risk.
Thanks to Plamena, Svetla Kuncheva, Ganka, Gergana and Sevim. Many thanks!
After three children from the Pink House tested positive for covid-19 and several staff members succumbed several women showed true courage, conscientiousness and loyalty, and remained in their jobs despite their age, the risk and severity of care.
We are half-way through the programme and progress has depended on refining the way all participants operate from remote locations using Zoom technology. This is no easy task when you consider that VIA personnel and EQ interpreters need to link up with as many as nine teams from the kindergarten during the working day…
Following the introduction of the state of emergency on March 13, our primary concern was to provide the 6 residential services (family-type accommodation) with food and disinfectants while ensuring they remained properly staffed. All caregivers and our drivers are over 60 years old and especially vulnerable.
There were no masks, the cost of disinfectant and gloves tripled and they were difficult to find. There was a danger that staff could become infected while using public transport or while queueing for…
The educational, cultural and ideological values within the Nordic tradition of early years’ care and education show a pronounced “social pedagogical” emphasis as opposed to a focus on “early education”. This means that preschool care in Denmark applies a social learning approach that emphasizes play, relationships and outdoor life and presumes that learning takes place through the participation of children in social interaction and everyday processes like walking to the park, traveling in the car and sharing a meal (including…
The “Do Good for Strangers” Foundation has provided food for vulnerable families who are clients of the Centre for Social Support, one of the designated services within the Ruse complex.
They provided packaged essentials, treats for the children and, most importantly, a selection of special formula milk and diapers for babies and toddlers. Some of the milk is for children with disabilities who Equilibrium cares for.
The bell was heard and Santa arrived for the children in the various social services run by Equilibrium.
We share with you their emotional moments. The most joy and excitement accompanied the gift given to those who have behaved during the year. It turned out to include everybody.
The funds will be used to provide specialized support to children with disabilities who need constant medical care, which our organization provides at the integrated services – Sunny.
