Bulgaria is set to receive EUR 40 M from the World Bank for projects to help Roma children integrate into society, Bulgaria’s Minister of Labor and Social Policy, Totyu Mladenov, reported Monday.
Mladenov, speaking at the the two-day regional seminar on ‘Social inclusion - the priorities of national and regional policies for social Europe’, stated that half of the money from the project will be invested in social policies, while the remainder will be for reconstruction and building of creches.
Municipalities and NGOs that meet the World Bank criteria will be eligible to use money from the project. The main target group will be Roma children and children with disabilities that need a “more accessible environment”. When you want to integrate, this must be done at the initial level,” Mladenov said.
The project will last from 2009 to 2013 and the first results will become clear in 2011, Mladenov concluded.
