Smokinya Events

Smokinya Club
In September we had 4 Smokinya Clubs. On the first SC we spend our Thursday evening on the picnic next to Maritsa river! Then on the 12th September we continued our active Smokinya Club and had a volleyball match in the Youth Center. For the third one, we met next to the Youth Hill and together we climbed the biggest hill in Plovdiv. And finally the last Smokinya Club was dedicated to board games at our attic!
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 continued the initiative to address this problem!

We held new cleaning events in the city of Plovdiv. In August we had two cleaning events, this time they took place in in Gagarin Neighborhood and Maritsa River! Thanks to the efforts of all participants, we made our area a better place!
