Sponsor a Child

Since September 1, 2013 The Cedar Foundation has partnered with the American organization Orphan Sponsorship International (OSI) in pursuit of our common mission – to provide a better life for disadvantaged people.

Together, we developed the program “Sponsor a Child” for the children we are constantly taking care of in our family-type homes in Kyustendil and Kazanlak. The sponsorship of one child is $35 per month (60 BGN) and the entire amount is used only for the child’s needs.

The sponsorship will enhance the individuality of each child and cover needs such as clothing, school/educational materials, transport and fun stuff such as birthday gifts, excursions and events. In short, it provides funds for each child to feel loved and be treated as a person.

The sponsor receives regular information about the child’s development and the spending of donations. If you would like to know more about the “Sponsor a Child” program, please contact Iva Hadzhiyska at iva@cedarfoundation.org.

Get Involved

Sponsor a Carer

“Sponsor A Carer” is a program that allows us to hire enough therapists to work directly with the children and young adults at our family-type homes in Kyustendil and Kazanlak. Companies from Bulgaria and abroad make such sponsorship as part of their corporate social responsibility program. As a result of their help, we managed to hire additional therapists.

Become a volunteer

Being a volunteer for The Cedar Foundation means to dedicate your time, skills and efforts to improve the lives of the children and young people with special needs that we help. As a volunteer, you will challenge yourself to try something different, you’ll develop your skills, and have the opportunity to meet new interesting people.

List of necessary materials

In our daily work we often find ourselves in need for materials and equipment for our activities and development of the children and young adults in our family-type homes and the Social Rehabilitation and Integration Center.
