ZOV is a children’s charity that works with children’s institutions in Bulgaria. ZOV means appeal in Bulgarian and we fund long term projects that help the children to lead happy, stable lives and fulfil their potential.
Sometimes it takes a while for a child who has grown up in institutional care to become independent. As well as providing welfare, educational support and helping them to prepare for life outside the home we make sure we support each child until they feel secure and independent.
ZOV has been awarded the highest recognition by the Bulgarian Ministry of Social Support for our innovative approach to social service and working with children, our outstanding results, our use of volunteers and efficiency as an organisation. The award is given annually and is the highest award in Bulgaria for innovation. We were nominated for this award by the Veliko Turnovo muncaplity who recently acknowledged ZOV as their best partner for the provision of care and support for children in need.
