During the event, the Early Intervention team of Karin Dom presented the activities included in the Early intervention service, as well as the successes and challenges the team encounters in their work.
Early childhood intervention services are a world-renowned way of providing support, and they are increasingly becoming a global priority. The starting point for the development of early childhood intervention in Bulgaria were the services provided by several non-governmental organizations. The Karin Dom Foundation is one of the first organizations to adapt models of early childhood intervention in Bulgaria.
Karin Dom started the service in 2010 and by the end of October 2019 a total of 897 children were included. Karin Dom works with an average of 65 families per month, 40 of which are financed by the Municipality of Varna through municipal delegated activity. We thank OMV Bulgaria for the support of the Early Intervention Program!
