Equilibrium – the provider of social services in the Ruse complex for children and families at risk, has won 4,000 leva in a competition of projects organized by the “Bulgarian Charities Aid Foundation” – BCAF.
The proposals should have been targeted at supporting parental organizations of disabled children. The money for the competition had been donated mainly by UniCredit Bulbank staff and supplemented by the BCAF social causes donations fund. The EQ project will be implemented from December 2011 to June 2012 in partnership with Ruse’s Open Society Club and Karin Dom Foundation – Varna.
“Early intervention is extremely important because at a very early stage it gives us the opportunity to discover that a child has a deficiency in his or her development. And early identification of each problem and timely intervention help to prevent its deepening” – explains Ms Milena Vlahova – the Director of the Ruse Complex for Social Services (CSS) and the manager of the project. “All the early intervention services are based on the perception that children begin learning from infancy, not when they enter school”, says also Ms Vlahova.
