Workshop for Civic Initiatives Foundation
Workshop for Civic Initiatives Foundation - WCIF is established in 2001. The idea for its founding was born after four years of work of the British Charity Know How Fund Program "Knowledge, Success, Change". The team implementing this program in Bulgaria decided to create a Bulgarian organization through which to build on the results achieved and develop new opportunities to work with civic groups and organizations in the country.
The work of WCIF has its place in the process of development of Bulgarian society in the long term. The initiatives it develops and supports reclaim a forgotten idea – the idea that individual responsibility, trust, care and philanthropy are essential for living in a free and democratic society.
