About Us

National Alliance for Volunteer Action (NAVA) Foundation

was established in Plovdiv in May 2000 as an organization for public benefit. The mission of NAVA is to revive the tradition of volunteerism in Bulgaria and to improve the public’s perception of volunteerism through organizing various initiatives, which include a large number of people from society, and promoting the values of volunteerism.

NAVA’s Strategic Goals:

  • To partner with local authorities in the implementation of local social and youth policy
  • To contribute to the regulation of the conditions and modalities for volunteerism in Bulgaria
  • To develop social services and prevention programs for children at risk, reintegrating them into society, and providing support for their parents
  • To develop our team so as to provide social services in line with European quality and standards
  • To increase awareness and sensitivity toward problems relating to abandonment and institutionalization
  • To create models for supporting local community centers which provide social services for children and families
