Stimulating Early Childhood Reading in Bulgaria

 Stimulating Early Childhood Reading in BulgariaThe Bulgarian Library and Information Association thanks everyone who has donated funds so far to support the project „Stimulating Early Childhood Reading in Bulgaria“! BLIA has been granted GlobalGiving's permanent partner status, and the project will remain on the platform until the necessary $ 6,000 is collected. Support us according to your capabilities!

The project will bring to children in the 1 – 6 years age group in low-income and underserved neighborhoods about 850 media items (books, games, videos). Those items will enrich the collections of 10 active libraries in small towns and villages and help them develop programs to stimulate early childhood reading; organize reading of children's books to both children and their parents; educate parents about the benefits of early childhood reading and train them how to read to their children at home.

More information about the project and how you can donate can be found here
