Workshop for Civic Initiatives Foundation
The Workshop for Civic Initiatives Foundation was established in 2001. Its mission is to encourage communities to take responsibility and to work actively for social development, utilizing local resources. Currently, community foundations in Bulgaria focus on youth development, especially the youth unemployment in the country. However, the biggest challenge for community foundations in Bulgaria at the moment is decreasing corporate funding.
