Foundations for the Future project
The project is funded by the Norwegian Finacial Mechanism under the Home Affairs Program. The Kingdom of Norway’s grant for the project amounts to EUR 899,103. The Norwegian Financial Mechanism contributes to reducing social and economic inequalities and strengthening bilateral relations between the Kingdom of Norway and the 13 beneficiary countries of the European Union.
The project aims to contribute to improving conditions and to bolstering the national capacity to receive international asylum seekers, with a specific focus on unaccompanied minors.
The main goal of the project is to secure participants’ Right to a Childhood, and to guarantee that unaccompanied minors have all their basic human rights met and that the most vulnerable among those seeking international protection in the Republic of Bulgaria are provided with the help they need to live a dignified and safe life.
