What do the participants in the first edition of Gergina share?

Kristina Mincheva, 21, Saraya village, Pazardzhik

Each meeting taught me many things. I feel richer and more confident. Now I believe more in my abilities and I know that even if I have serious obstacles in my way, I will overcome them, thanks to this course. I am fascinated by the ambition of the girls involved in Gergina, and I am glad that there are so many young and enthusiastic people. One of the most important things I will take is contact with everyone.

„Гергина“ ни предостави въпросите, с които да опознаем себе си. Липсата на напрежение от това да споделяш отговорите на всеки от въпросите, позволява да бъдем искрени със себе си и наистина да разберем какво се случва в нас. Бих препоръчала обучението на абсолютно всеки, тъй като резултатите са налице – чувствам се спокойна, планирам си по-добре времето и съм вдъхновена да продължа напред към целите си.

Vasilena Encheva, 16 The village of Nikyup

I learned a lot from this online training, but the most useful for me are the lessons, "How to organize our time?", "How to deal with people we don't get along with?" And "How to overcome the limited idea of myself?". I recommend it because girls who are my age would find it very useful, because the information and help that you have given us very rarely, we could meet.

The program is dedicated to

Gergina Toncheva

Our development program pays tribute to an admirable woman with an outstanding contribution to Bulgarian education and culture, whose earthly journey begins in the small Pleven village of Sadovets.

Who is Gergina Toncheva?

Gergina Toncheva was born on December 25, 1932, in the village of Sadovets, Pleven region. He died on July 11, 2020, in Sofia. She is the awakener, founder, and thirty-year-old director of the National High School of Ancient Languages and Cultures.

Winner of numerous awards and distinctions, including:

Honorary Award of the "Vivarium Novum" Academy in Rome

Order "Stara Planina" I degree (2003)

Award "Prof. Marko Semov "- for a bright presence in the spiritual life of the nation (2010)

Honorary badge with a blue ribbon of Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski ”(2012)

Award for contribution to the capital's education

Honorary Citizen of Sofia (2018)

What connects us to her?

Gergina Toncheva is the founder and longtime director of NGDEK "St. Constantine Cyril the Philosopher". This is the high school graduated by Maggie Nazer (founder and executive director of the Solidarity in Action Foundation), Denitsa Stoycheva (member of the foundation's board), and Ilina Stefanova (coordinator of the SazVukovo volunteer project and other art initiatives).

For the first time Magi, Denitsa, and Ilina meet Gergina Toncheva at the exams for applying to NGDEK, where the director remains a lasting memory with her unique and unadulterated kindness, care, and interest in girls. In the eighth grade, Mrs. Toncheva teaches the subject Lyuboslovie, in which she tenderly builds the respect, alertness, and aesthetic sense of the students to the Bulgarian language and various topics of human existence. 

In 9th grade, Maggie and Denitsa share with Ms. Toncheva the idea of creating a student volunteer association at NGDEK, which the principal willingly welcomes and supports. 

Гергина Тончева осигурява стипендия за Маги Назер да участва в учебните практики на НГДЕК в Турция и Гърция. За Маги, която идва от семейство в неравностойно положение, това е първо пътуване в чужбина – възможност, която широко разтваря нейните хоризонти и запалва искрата на нейния пътешественически и откривателски дух, които по-късно я отвеждат да участва и организира многобройни програми за междукултурен обмен, да учи в САЩ, както и да изследва себе си, различните култури и измерения на човешкото в повече от 35 държави. 

Gergina Toncheva's role in building girls as young leaders, researchers, and awake souls is huge.

What do participants in our previous programs share?

Thanks to Maggie and Ellie, who gave me the opportunity to join the international program "Awake, Aware, Active", which took place during the summer in the village of Drugan. It was a great experience. I met a lot of new people, learned a lot about the foreign culture and way of life of the people around the world, and made new friends. Together with them, we created many memories that are invaluable to me personally. These were the greatest days of this summer.

I will participate in the personal development program "Gergina" with great enthusiasm! I hope to meet again young, ambitious, and very aware people who want to develop and want to get out of their comfort zone. I can't wait to meet and have fun together!

Ventsislava Slavkova, 17, Drugan village

I have participated in two programs of the foundation. The first was the language camp Immersion Academy 2019, and the second – was the youth exchange Storytelling for Social Justice 2021. My impressions of the foundation are very good - the leaders are dedicated, smiling, positive, and sincere, the atmosphere is nice and I always like the food. As for people - they are unique and there is always something to learn from them. Every day we learn interesting things through different activities, touch on all kinds of topics and enrich each other.

When I am in the village of Drugan, I am often impressed by the extent to which the positive and supportive atmosphere gives us, the participants, the opportunity to develop in the right direction. I also appreciate that during the day we have free time and spend it as we wish.

Selin Ali, 17, Buhovo

I was part of the Immersion Academy 2019, the volunteer project "Faces of Drugan" and the publication of an ethnographic book with interviews with elderly residents of the village of Drugan, as well as in an international exchange for young writers in 2021. Every experience organized by the Foundation "SolidarityWorks" team is exceptional.

It is amazing how by meeting new people you learn more about yourself and your uniqueness. All activities carried out in the village create a completely natural and liberating atmosphere. You can't help but feel close to everyone there and not feel like you've known them for years.
