„Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."
After many years of dedicated work in various organizations, we realized that we could have a more tangible impact on the development of the education system in Bulgaria and the Balkans if we combined our efforts in a clear direction. This is how the idea for our foundation was born.
We strive for innovation and sustainability of results. We believe in holistic solutions based on collaboration between representatives of a wide range of sectors and systems.
