In 2020 we began accepting volunteers through the project ''Young Volunteers and Horses Make a Change for Children with Disabilities''. The young people from Europe came to our organization and dedicated their time to helping Bulgarian children improve their health condition. They were teaching the children to count in French, German and Portuguese, played games with them, helped them to the best of their abilities become better riders.
Because of the young people’s dedication, we were able to provide free weekly individual sessions of therapeutic riding to children with special needs. Their participation is one of the important features of our Program. Of course, we will continue accepting the young people in our facilities with the second edition of the project - ''Young Volunteers and Horses Make a Change for Children with Disabilities 2021-2022''.
Now we are looking for young motivated people from France, Germany, Portugal or Luxembourg to join us. There are three volunteering periods they can choose from – April/May; June/July; August/September. More information, deadlines, and how to apply can be found here.
The children and horses cannot wait to meet their new international friends this year!
The project ''Young Volunteers and Horses Make a Change for Children with Disabilities 2021-2022'' is supported by the European Solidarity Corps Program.
