Lead Bulgarian, English and art classes in Sofia for women and children displaced by the war

Lead Bulgarian, English and art classes in Sofia for women and children displaced by the war


The "Open Doors" Situational Centre is one of the first places in Bulgaria to provide support for families seeking protection in Sofia - psychological, with options for temporary accommodation, administrative assistance, registration and other services to help those arriving.

Today, four months after the start of the crisis, the centre is beginning a transition to activities that aim to be of long term help, providing those fleeing the war with security, stability and conditions for a decent life in Bulgaria. To facilitate this process of adaptation for women and children determined to build new lives here, the organization needs your help.

Join the family of volunteers by:

  • leading Bulgarian and/or English language classes for women and children;
  • leading classes for children who will start school in Bulgaria, to adapt to our education system;
  • leading various art classes for children - painting, singing, acting, etc.

If you see yourself in any of the above roles, stay tuned for the details.


The classes/courses will be held at the "Open Doors" Situational Centre in Sofia, on ul. "Al. Malinov" № 78.

Note that after 1st August their location will change, as the organization is looking for a new building for its activities.


The days, frequency and times of the classes will depend entirely on your commitments and availability. Once you have clicked the green "I will participate" button, you can mark in the survey when it will be convenient for you to join.

By taking part in this mission you will support the successful integration into Bulgarian society of people displaced from their homes by war.

Skills needed?

Your language skills in Bulgarian should be high, you should have teaching experience and willingness to share your knowledge.

It is a good idea to be able to speak Russian in order to communicate easily with the groups. Previous teaching experience with foreign citizens is an advantage.

Are there any age restrictions?

    Do I need to know Ukrainian for this or is English and Bulgarian enough?

    Thank you for your willingness to support us. It is entirely up to you: some teachers have a method of teaching that does not require using the students' native language, other teachers prefer to be able to speak to students. Your level of comfort with teaching is most important - if you feel you can teach without knowing Ukrainian or Russian, then it's OK with us.

    Здравейте! Понеже ставам на 18 едва в края на юли, а имам интерес към инициативата, бих искал да попитам дали ще има нова мисия от първи август нататък?
