Bulgaria Team – Thursday

Today was another eventful day. In the morning we all went to a park where we then met with 40 kids with different age ranges. We spilt the kids into 3 different groups and taught them about different values to do with the Olympics; friendship, courage and equality. In my group we spoke about what it meant to have courage and went round in a circle asking the kids what courage meant to them. Then we played a few games, which also presented this theme. Later on, we all went to a youth centre where we watched presentations. This helped to give us a better understanding of the work that Gancho and the youth centre does. We all planned something to perform or show to the youth worker’s about either our culture or something that we liked to do. After the joy-filled of performances we were all treated with homemade Bulgarian food.
