"For us joining the Program is an honor and a responsibility and we believe that together we will write another page of the social entrepreneurship in Bulgaria and so to be remembered in history," said Milen Gechovski from the Association "Protectors", Montana.
The civil society organizations and their social enterprises can provide sustainable solutions - by adapting not only to the changed business environment, but also to the increased social needs in the areas in which they work. This is why we've started the Recover Program for social enterprises LET's GO and among 41 applications we selected 15 organizations with strong motivation to move forward and resume their activities after the crisis.
In the next 3 months (June - August) each organization will have periodic meetings with a team of mentors, from which they will receive specific advice and expert support for achieving progress.
After the intensive mentoring, the organizations will have one month (until September 10) in which to prepare a business plan and present their idea to a jury. At the end of September, the jury composed of representatives of the partners in the Program and the media will determine the best ideas and the financial support to be granted for their implementation.
