Competition Voluntary Initiative 2017

Volunteering is a personal and conscious act of learning, connecting with people and solidarity among generations. Volunteering is part of the daily life of thousands of people in Bulgaria. Volunteers are changing the life in more and more places. They give their time and skills but need to be supported and encouraged.

Tulip Foundation and National Alliance for Voluntary Action announce the traditional annual competition for the most interesting and effective voluntary initiatives in Bulgaria in 2017 for a seventh successive year.

All organisations and groups that have organised voluntary initiatives during the year regardless the place and the period of the realisation, the aim and organisation of the actions, the sources of funding, number and age of the volunteers are invited to participate. Every good initiative deserves recognition!

The initiatives will be evaluated on the basis of their results, the importance for the local community, the number and the involvement of the participants, the impact of the initiative for the development of the capacity of the volunteers and the team of the organisation, the financial effectiveness.

The best initiatives will be praised with a special certificate and award in the form of investment in the development of the volunteers.

Initiatives can be nominated by organisations and individuals by sending the filled nomination form to by 6 November 2017.

A full list of all nominated initiatives will be presented on the Internet sites of Tulip Foundation and NAVA.

The awards will be announced at a public ceremony in the eve of the International Day of volunteers in the beginning of December 2017.
