There isn’t a more satisfying feeling than the feeling of helping and giving. In my work so far, I have learned that efforts must be united to reach more people in need. WWO supports not only the children and parents it serves, not only its partners but also us – the team who hava the freedom to respond and seek flexible solutions. My motivation comes from the fact that every day is different from the other, that difficulties arise but also pass away because the path we have chosen to follow is a path to improving the lives of children, a path to changing human lives and creating a childhood, filled with games and joy.
Early Childhood Development Coordinator
I believe helping other people in any way we can is the thing that gives life a meaning. It is an honor for me to work in an organization full of like-minded people who are united in their goal to support children and families at risk. It gives me great hope seeing the change that every small step brings to people and their communities and this makes me want to keep going even in challenging times.
It is a privilege for me to be part of an organization that makes the present of children at risk useful and fun, filled with smiles and curiosity about learning as well as about the world. The feeling of giving hope and building perspective for the future of children together with their families is inspiring. I am happy to work in a developing organization that accepts the challenges of reforms in the country and the promotion of full-fledged care for children with proactivity and solutions.

It is an honor and a privilege for me to be part of the team of this Foundation!
The good needs daily support, and children deserve the best in life!
Every day is unique and it is us who can make it meaningful!
That’s why I want to be the reason for a child’s smile, for the fulfillment of their dreams, for the joy in their eyes, for them feeling trusted and safe!
That is why, with deep conviction and a sense of mission, I defend the rights of vulnerable children, contribute to changes in education, development and a better future for Bulgarian children!
I am a strong believer that together we can do more!
