Nearly Half of Bulgarian Seventh Graders do not Believe their Classmates are Good People

The main partner of the initiative are the contributors from Aide BG Ivaylo and Christiana.

Ten of the best stories will be told in a special video on Aide BG Channel, and five of the stories will have an exclusive fan show with Ivaylo and Christiana in Sofia in early June.
