The project of National Network for Children for building a House of Children was published in the international fundraising platform GlobalGiving. For ten days it succeeded to raise the necessary funds to become a partner of the platform. Thus the campaign in the platform is going to stay active till the reaching of its goal.
The entire team of National Network for Children would like to thank deeply to all supporters who have donated for the campaign in GlobalGiving.
The project that aims to build a House of children from the whole country of Bulgaria is among the first 10 projects by donations and on 4th place by number of donors in the September Accelerator – a campaign tool of GlobalGiving platform. During the September Accelerator campaign our project had the aim to gain till 30 September at least 5000 USD by 40 donors. Reaching this goal our project won the chance to stay active in the GlobalGiving platform till reaching it origin goal – fundraising of 25 000 USD that will cover the start of the construction works. In fact, the amount needed to cover the fees for the acquisition of all authorization documentation has been already provided by the campaign in GlobalGiving. Each next donation of $ 10 will cover the cost of about 20 bricks.
The decision to build a House of children, which to become a center for protection and education of children in their rights was taken two years ago at the General Assembly of the Network. This year, as a result of presenting the idea to donors and foundations as OAK and VELUX, the National Network for Children was able to identify the land parcel in the Sofia center and to purchase it with donated funds. Now our organization is in the process of gaining the necessary documentation for starting the constructions. The next stage of the project will be the organization of a public announced competition for conceptual design and architectural plan. The Huse of children will be located in the center of Sofia, near Hristo Botev blvd. at 825 sq m. The start of the construction of the House is planned for spring 2017.
Our organization is grateful for every donation regardless its size and appeals to everybody who believes that investment in the children is in fact investment in future, to support the project with a donation through the GlobalGiving platform. Thank you!
