The interview prepared: Martin Nikolaev
We thank Martin for the time spent together at Karin Dom for the preparation of this series with a presentation of our team! Martin has prepared interviews that we will periodically publish with great desire to get to know the everyday work of every member of Karin Dom team that has been running the organization for so many years to come. For many, the work in a non-governmental organization is, at the same time, an unknown and interesting challenge. We hope to answer many questions about how we work to protect the rights of children with special needs and their future in Bulgaria.
