I am grateful for the past weekend (13-15.10.2023), because I met many wonderful young people, thirsty for new knowledge, burning in the cause of helping. I was invited to an animation course for young people in the town of Kazanlak to lead a topic focused on the psychological development of children and youth at several ages, as well as a topic on the development of personality and its characteristic features. For the youngsters, this was the 6th meeting, and for me – the first. I was fascinated by the curiosity and empathy they showed me. I participated in many games that brought out the child in me and brought me back to childhood. These wonderful young people are from different cities, but united by the desire to develop personally and spiritually, tirelessly participated in
the course syllabus produced by the equally amazing team for this course. I was also fascinated by the relationships between everyone, the organization and strong desire of each one. I also learned new things about the Focolare Movement in Bulgaria, as well as about prayer. “Don Bosco Bulgaria” Foundation – thank you very much, I would come again!”
