Association Vasilica, was founded 10 years ago to face the difficulties of Bulgarian society through localized work towards improving the well being of children in risk groups. By working with children at school age, they focus their efforts on prevention and education by informal methods, to be able to provide knowledge, communication skills, confidence and motivation to children who receive insufficient positive reinforcement and their daily environment, such as school, home, etc.
Main objectives: Puppet serves as a metaphor of the way many children feel – voiceless, immobile, dependent on others and unable to be socially active. The organisation aspires to create an actual Puppet House which would act as a center where children can learn, be creative and receive therapy. They work with children at different locations and focus on informal education methods.
