Преводач-фасилитатор с фарси, гр. София
For more than 6 years, Caritas Sofia has been working with refugee children living in Sofia, through projects including The Refugee Project, the St. Anna information centre, mission:future and activities in Busmantsi detention centre.
Refugee and asylum seeker children face significant hurdles in accessing school education and/or integrating in Bulgaria. Before they are in school, the Bulgarian Government has no integration activities for children or their parents, so there are many children living in the reception centres who are bored and under-stimulated.
In 2016 we managed to create child
friendly spaces in Sofia and Harmanli reception centres for asylum
seekers and refugees. The Childrens Worker with Farsi will work with the
facilitators to ensure that appropriate recreational activities are
the child-friendly spaces, and that any children with extra support
referred to other services.
