Newsletter August 2023

B.R.I.G.H.T  FUTURE is over!  In June Smokinya Team together with 30 international volunteers spent extremely fulfilling time on the camp in Mrachenik. During this month we were helping local community by cleaning and renovating the village. Also we focused on personal development - we provided workshops and space to reflect  for our participants.

There was also a lot of fun activities! We had an amazing time together and we are extremеly happy to announce that in 2024 we will host 2 more camps!  

Check out our website post with our memories of the first B.R.I.G.H.T FUTURE and watch the video to find out what participants have said about this project!

Smokinya Events

Smokinya Club
In August we had 5 Smokinya Clubs. On the first SC we went to Rozarium park and play a tie volleyball match. Then on the 10th August we continued our active Smokinya Club and had a basketball match in the Youth Center. For the third one, we met in our attic and we used our brains to play Kahoot with the hardest quiz ever!  On the 24th August we met outside in the "Tsar Simeon Garden" Park because we organized a treasure hunt. For our last Smokinya Club we came back in our attic to know more about your communication style

Cleaning Events
While many enjoy their leisure time outdoors, not everyone prioritizes caring for the outdoor environment. Unfortunately, litter is a often seen issue. Therefore, we have taken the initiative to address this problem!

We held new cleaning events in the city of Plovdiv. In August we had two cleaning events organised by us, this time they took place in Maritsa River & in Smokinya Garden! Thanks to the efforts of all participants, we made our area a better place!
Upcoming event
