Sustainability and partnership lead Euroins to invest in a better future for children
Long-term partnership and sustainability over time - these are the two main principles that guide Euroins Insurance Company AD in corporate social responsibility. It is aimed at supporting projects and policies in the fields of education, sports, environment and art.
But the main mission is to support children and their development, because the company believes that this is the best investment that can be made for the future of society. And this investment will return through well-educated young people ready to pursue dreams.
Over the years, Euroins has recognized as its cause the projects related mostly to disadvantaged children deprived of parental care. Because they want to show them that the world can be better, more colorful and more beautiful than the one they see at a given moment. And so to stimulate them to fight, learn and strive for it and to believe that anything is possible, as long as you really want it, work hard and do not give up.
And it is no coincidence that 90% of charitable causes and initiatives are related to children, for their health, development, training and education.
The company states that they have changed their social responsibility strategy for several years. And thanks to Krasi Velichkova from the Bulgarian Charity' Forum, they have contacted several foundations with which they work fruitfully on various projects. These are organizations with a long history, excellent financial reporting and projects close to Euroins , which the company recognizes.
The company works on two projects together with the Blagotvoritel Foundation. The first is the national competition "Young Philanthropist". Students from 7th to 12th grade have the opportunity to participate in it, who create and implement charity projects with which they can personally contribute to improving the environment in which they live, communicate and learn. The project recruitment campaign lasts three months, after which they are evaluated by a jury. Those ranked in the top 10 pass a new selection before the jury with live or online presentations. The first five projects, awarded with the highest marks, receive funding for implementation.
They also work with the same foundation on the project "I achieve higher success". Its purpose is to stimulate the efforts and the pursuit of knowledge of high-achieving students from 8th to 12th grade and 1st year students who are deprived of parental care. The scholarship program supports and encourages young people to be successful, as the foundation provides moral, friendly and mentoring support. Under this program, two students are already interns in the company.
Since 2015, together with the St. Nichola National Fund Foundation, the insurance company has been working on various charitable causes and initiatives. Annually donates financial and material resources for children deprived of parental care and staying in family-type accommodation centers. Every year the little ones are provided with a 10-day vacation at sea to improve their health and rehabilitation is done for those who have physical disabilities. So far, the company has provided the holiday of over 200 children.
With the support of Euroins last year in Pleven was held the first competition for running children and parents FUN RUN KIDS, in which children with disabilities also participate. They show a strong spirit and desire, and their inclusion is the mission of FUN RUN KIDS. The event is organized by some of the largest and most active NGOs, associations and social enterprises in the country: JAMBA (Social Future Foundation), Maria World World Foundation, National Alliance for Social Responsibility in partnership with the Autism Today Association.

Individual and group activities are organized for them in a dayly center, their personal realization is helped through access to quality services, developmental training and appropriate employment.
Earlier this year, the insurance company helped a Nadezhda mother kitchen to be opened, where the foundation's alumni receive support from professional chefs, occupational therapists and social workers. In this kitchen the graduates prepare food as part of it is used for catering for various events.
With the same foundation several times a year Euroins Insurance Company organizes charity bazaars on the territory of the Eurohold business center, which sell beautiful souvenirs and sweets made by the alumni of the foundation.
