Workshop of hope

Partners and friends of “Zagorka” AD received a very special Christmas gift – a wooden toy that made several children feel happy, useful and proud.

The toy was made with a lot of love from the kids of the orphanage “Teophano Popova” in Stara Zagora. The toy is just one of many other beautiful wooden items. They are the result of the co-ordinated efforts of the “Bulgarian traditions” foundation and “Zagorka” AD to establish a carpenter’s workshop in the orphanage.

The children will receive rewards for their efforts, and of course – the feeling that they do things on their own, that they have personalities.

This is not one of those movies with a “good ending”, but a real story.

The main heroes of this story are the children from the orphanage “Teophano Popova” in the city Stara Zagora, the director of the place Rilka Ivanova, the stoker and craftsman Toncho Gospodinov, and the psychologist Borislava Simova from the “Traditions” foundation. The gallery of the foundation in Sofia also displays and sells the work of the little craftsmen.
