Bulgaria / Bela Rechka
Duración: 07.05. – 28.05.2018
Volunteers: 5 alemanes / 3 Int.
PROJECT: Bela Rechka is a small village located 80 km north of Sofia. Many young people migrated from Bela Rechka into cities, while old people stayed behind. Since 2004 the foundation “Nova Kultura” organizes cultural activities in Bela Rechka that brought life to the village again. Every year in May, the international GOATMILK Festival with music, art and work-shops takes place in Bela Rechka. The IBO volunteers have been helping for several years to renovate the former school building and transform it into a cultural center – the main venue of the festival. In 2018 the festival celebrates its 15th anniversary. For this, the walls of the festive hall are to be plastered and painted; new benches and chairs as well as a children’s playground in the forest are to be built. The volunteers also support the team in preparing for the festival, which will take place from 24-28 May. There is plenty of room for creative ideas!
