We are SolidarityWorks
Change-driven women-led organization founded in 2018
We promote, encourage and support the sustainable development of individuals and communities through solidarity and collective action for a social change.
Our work at a glance
At SolidarityWorks we work tirelessly to promote intergenerational and intercultural dialogue, empower marginalized groups, as well as youth, women and the elderly. We use art, storytelling, advocacy and self-development to prevent domestic and intimate partner violence, and are continuously learning how to create healthy and fulfilling interpersonal relationships as well as nurture solidarity between and among diverse groups of people.
What moves us?
We act even when we are not directly affected,
because we understand that our wellbeing is directly linked to the
wellbeing of others.
Responsibility & Initiative
We don't wait for somebody else to "fix things" for us. We strive to participate and lead the creation of sustainable solutions.
Working with others is often times challenging and messy. Yet, we strive to build bridges and find ways towards collaboration for the common good.

How are we funded?
A majority of our funds are received through funding obtained by European Union programs such as Erasmus+ и European Solidarity Corps .
We also sometimes receive funds by feminist donors such as the Bulgarian Fund for Women and With and For Girls Fund .
We have also received donations and funding by a few corporate donors. However, we conduct thorough research on them to make sure that they do not make their money in ways that conflict with our values including preservation of the environment, non-exploitation of humans and animals.
