Info about the Center for Education and Upbringing

The town of Iskar, in north-western Bulgaria, is home to about 3,500 people. Despite its small size, Hristo Smirnensky, the local school, boasts a strong English language program. Educators at the school, with the help of volunteers, previously established an English Language Room, where students could access English language materials to enhance and improve their English language skills. As use of the room has increased and activities have expanded to include extracurricular programs such as drama and art clubs, the teachers wish to equip the room with technical equipment that would support these endeavors. So that the students may perform, Partnership funds are being sought to purchase microphones, an amplifier, speakers, a projector and national costumes. Through performing publicly, students will be able to use their English skills in a more challenging forum and will consequently acquire skills that will serve them well as they matriculate into the competitive work force. The community of Iskar is donating all labor associated with the project as well as traditional supplies for the English Language Room.
