Know-How Center for the Alternative Care for Children, NBU, alongside the National Foster Care Association (NFCA) are organizing trainings for work with unaccompanied migrant children and foster families supporting unaccompanied migrant children. Three two-day trainings will take place in Haskovo (21 and 22 February), Sliven (28 February and 1 March) and Sofia (28 February and 1 March) within the framework of the project “Promoting Foster Care for Unaccompanied Children in Europe”" in which the KHC cooperates with organizations from the Netherlands, Italy and Greece.

The training is aimed at professionals from the three regions who work with foster parents. Their goal is to develop the knowledge and skills of the professionals together with foster parents in assisting unaccompanied migrant children and vulnerable children of a different ethnicity and/or nationality. At the core of the training program is the approved model for providing support and care for migrant and refugee children by the Dutch organization Nidos, whose over 20-year thematic experience has been successfully used in countries across Europe.

If you are interested in any of the trainings, you can search for further information from Evgenia Toneva, Project Coordinator at 0885 199 088 and by e-mail: evgenia@knowhowcentre.org.
