Best Buddies Bulgaria

Best Buddies Bulgaria is a charitable organisation established in January 2017.

Best Buddies Bulgaria belongs to the family of Best Buddies International – a non-profit organisation established in 1989 by Anthony Kennedy Shriver. Nowadays Best Buddies operate in all 50 states of the US, and in 50 countries worldwide. The organisation is dedicated to establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).

Our goals:

  • Establish a volunteer movement which promotes and creates effective friendships among IDD and non-IDD peers;
  • Support the social integration of IDD individuals and enhance their personal achievement by strengthening their social links with peers, ensuring their active involvement in public life, promoting leadership development, improving their self-expression and self-advocacy skills and helping them engage in integrated employment;
  • Raise public awareness of and sensitivity to the challenges and skills of people with intellectual difficulties, starting from early school age.
