Newsletter July 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 July we had 3 Smokinya Clubs. On the first SC we went to Maritsa river to spend some good time playing board games and having a picnic. On 20th of July in Rozarium park we had volleyball match. Finally, on 27th of July we gathered in the Youth Centre of Plovdiv to play football
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 July we had two cleaning events organised by us, this time they took place in Sahat Tepe & Maritsa River! Thanks to the efforts of all participants, we made our area a better place!
