About this grant

The Chitalishte Development Foundation supports a network of Bulgarian chitalishte – community centers with a long history of supporting literacy, education and community development. This grant will enable the foundation to build chitalishte capacity by providing information, training and technical assistance; increase the support for chitalishte by establishing effective partnerships with relevant government and non-governmental organizations; and develop its own organizational capacity by strengthening human resources, diversifying the funding base and developing new services.Since its creation in 2004, the foundation has worked to build the capacity of chitalishta to bring positive changes and development in local communities.
