The project contributed to the capacity building and raising the motivation of the structures of civil society for the provision of better, more effective and accessible social services for at-risk children, living in the five Municipalities of the Region of Targovishte. For the realization of the project, we applied the family-centred approach for early intervention for children with disabilities, which is innovative for Bulgaria. Representatives of five NGOs from the municipalities undertook training and one-week internship at the Club of NGOs – Targovishte. The training was provided by Karin Dom Foundation – Varna. The trained NGOs subsequently applied the family-centered approach in the five municipalities in the Region of Targovishte.
The project completed the following specific goals:
- Improving the quality and the scope of the social services, provided by the Club of NGOs and targeted at vulnarable groups and more specifically children with innate disabilities.
- Capacity-building for the civil society structures in the five municipalities in the Region of Targovishte, providing social services for children.
- Raising effectiveness of civil participation in the processes of designing and applying policies in the social sphere at municipal, regional and wider area level. Creating a mechanism for effective cooperation and joint initiatives among the civil society structures at the territory of the region;
- Creating sustainability and prospect for the development of the Club of NGOs and its members through raisng the capacity of the organisation.
