10,000 homegrown heroes

Since 2009 we have served over 10,000 children and adults, through the use of locally hired staff and volunteer efforts. 


the WWO approach


Identify the unique needs of orphans and at-risk children in institutional and community settings, addressing those needs through medical, developmental, psychosocial and educational programs that are respectful of cultural norms.


Build the capacity of local partners and parents to nurture children with love and attention, which is every child's birthright, so they may grow, learn, play and, ultimately, lead productive and dignified adult lives.


Scale our work through strategic partnerships with like-minded organizations, both in-country and internationally, so WWO can extend its reach, use resources effectively and ensure sustainability.

a holistic approach to address the needs of children comprehensively  

WWO Bulgaria believes in good practices to ensure quality in our performance and fidelity to program interventions. As we invariably work in partnership with local service providers, the ultimate goal of our programs is the transition of intervention models and best practices. We also seek to empower our partners to lead in the efforts to affect positive change in vulnerable children and families and to take full ownership of the intervention as WWO transitions to new areas of need. In order to facilitate the transition, an effective and fully functioning system of MEAL must be in place at the beginning of each partnership. Partners are expected to play an active role in the entire project cycle, including identifying needs, implementing and monitoring quality of interventions, and conducting periodical review and evaluation with support from WWO.  WWO and its partners are fully committed to accountability for transparency, compliance and good governance of the programs.
