On the 16th of October at “Oborishte 5” hall, a multicultural information event was held, organized by IOM Bulgaria.

Despite the unprecedented situation, regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, this year won’t make an exception.

This is the number of legally residing migrants who have successfully completed the courses in levels A1 and A2, provided free of charge from IOM between the spring of 2019 and now.

The youths were instructed in traditional Bulgarian dances by licensed teachers in the presence of a social worker from IOM.

The participants were plenty and the festivities included diverse games and artistic displays.
