The working week for us starts with wonderful news. Last Sunday in the village of Gorno Pestene, we had the honour to be guests during the open ceremony of a new youth space, which was renovated by the “Youth Activities Club” from team “Friends”. The ribbon was personally cut by the mayor of Vratsa municipality – Kalin Kamenov and the initiator of the youth initiative – Mila Stoichkova. The program was filled with various activities. Young people from the village received 20 paint-by-number pictures from their colleagues from the Young center – Vratsa. They will work on them in the upcoming weeks. After they are all finished, a charity exhibition will be organized and with the collected money the youngsters will try to renovate the other room of the youth space. Youth workers from Youth Center – Vratsa also conducted an activity based on the “Participatory Art” methodology the young people had to express their emotions by working with clay. The created space will be used and developed in the upcoming months. It will serve as a gathering point for the youth not only from the village but also from the region, where they will be able to gather and develop their talents.
The youth initiative is part of Project BGLD – 1.003 – 0004 “Vratsa Youth Center – a factor for the development of the North-West”, financed through the Financial Mechanism of the EEA 2014-2021.
