Registered as a non-governmental association in November 1995, Educo Bulgaria operates as an independent, non-religious, non-political, not-for-profit organization. The vision of Educo Bulgaria is to believe that deep within each human soul lies a sense of harmony, of belonging to the world, and of responsibility towards future generations. They are convinced that the survival of humanity lies in preserving and developing these universal human values by recognizing our planet as our common home and actively respecting and caring for one another and nature. International Adventure School Educo Bulgaria was born during one of the country's most difficult years in response to the need to generate a positive model for the physical, spiritual, and personal development of our children and young people. Latin for "to draw forth", Educo draws forth self-awareness and a sense of purpose in individuals, powerful tools for developing thoughtful citizens with strong leadership qualities. Educo believes that it is impossible to make a better world without ensuring the harmonious development of individuals.
The goal of Educo is to offer challenging activities in a wild natural setting. The program is designed to enable young people to discover their innate inner resources and step beyond their perceived limits, to develop initiative, and to build creative and independent personalities. Educo works as well to strengthen their physical health and to help them to understand their role and responsibilities in preserving the natural environment. The young people are taught respect and reverence for the natural environment and are encouraged to find their own place in the world.
The programs are designed as extended, multi-day outdoor courses. The beautiful surroundings and favourable geography of Bulgaria allows Educo to run courses year-round.
Types of courses are:
- standard (with open enrollment),
- specialized (for participants with similar health and social issues),
- multicultural courses,
- teambuilding for University students, Staff of NGO's, Child Care Institutions, and Profit making corporations.
Margerita Minkova is the Executive Director of Educo Bulgaria.
