Despite the declared support for foster care in Bulgaria, at the state level there is a lack of comprehensive vision for its future development.
375 children from vulnerable families received financial and emotional support from A1 and NFCA in 2020
375 children raised by 253 parents in families at risk were supported by the National Foster Care Association and „A1” in 2020 through the "Parents +" initiative.
63% of Bulgarians would not become foster parents under any circumstances, and every sixth child would be accepted at home if they received a salary and child support from the state.
October 25 is the Day of Foster Parents and Foster Care, but we also care about every other day.
A1 and the National Foster Care Association (NFCA) traditionally organized a holiday Foster care on the eve of the first day of school for children and teenagers in foster care.
