Retired Equipment Lives On

This month the Bulgarian Fulbright Commission took part in an exciting initiative by the Center for Interethnic Dialogue and Tolerance, AMALIPE. Amalipe is a leading Roma organization, working for the equal integration of Roma in Bulgarian Society. This month Amalipe announced its campaign “Old Equipment for New Beginning”, aiming to include more Roma students in distant learning programs with the help of donated computers and other electronic devices. The computers provided by the Fulbright Commission will give 16 students from the “St. Kliment Ohridski” primary school in the village of Pet Mogili (“Five Peaks”) near Sliven access to online education. The school also provided a USB device with unlimited Internet for every donated desktop.
