The highest education is that which does not merely give us information but makes our life in harmony with all existence.

2022 - 2023

     In 2023, the "Hope for Us" аssociation successfully implemented  "Trans Green Inspiration" project in partnership with "Natural Perspective" Association from North Macedonia. 

     The project is funded by the European Commission under the Erasmus+ KA2 program. The main goal is to create and implement an innovative and sustainable training model for young people in social entrepreneurship and development of green business ideas for environmental protection.

       The project enhanced the capacity of both organizations through the exchange of best practices and collaboration in developing and implementing the training model for young social entrepreneurs.

It also supported the development of the training centers of both partners by improving their physical conditions to accommodate those willing to learn and volunteers. The project's execution expanded and promoted the activities of the partners and created opportunities for their interaction with schools.

As part of the project, training materials were developed and made available for future training sessions and initiatives in the field of green social entrepreneurship. 

During the summer season, the two associations conducted training for a total of 45 young people in Bulgaria and North Macedonia. Throughout the training, the youth developed diverse and interesting business ideas, demonstrating once again that it is possible to live in a more harmonious world if each individual and all of us together take responsibility. The project encouraged young people to take an active position and contribute for change in their communities by practically developing green social business ideas, showcasing the potential and necessity for businesses to be not only a mean to generate profit but also an instrument for positive societal and ecological change.

Last summer, the "Hope for Us" association organised two training sessions on the topic of "Green Social Entrepreneurship." A total of 20 young people from across the country gathered to discuss social and environmental challenges and to develop green social business ideas aimed at addressing these issues.

      The training sessions were productive and innovative, with participants developing various interesting business concepts.

     One of the ideas was related to the production of environmentally sustainable clothing with shevitzi using Bulgarian textiles.

     This project not only supports the Bulgarian textile industry and preserves our cultural heritage but also provides job opportunities for retired women.

     Another intriguing idea involved creating a camping site in an animal sanctuary with a garden and workshops for handmade crafts.

    Yet another innovative concept was the organisation of nature camps for children with autism.

     These camps not only provide specialised care and support but also create opportunities for the development of social skills and connections in a natural environment. 

     The training sessions not only expanded the knowledge and skills of the participants but also empowered them with the clarity, motivation, and inspiration to make a difference. The initiatives of the association aim to activate young people by reminding them that we need to be the change that we want to see in the world.
