EU Mobility Project “Friendship overcomes differences” involving three activity groups under the partnership of Tabitha Bulgaria and Werkgroep Bulgarije in Wijk & Aalburg (Nl). We had more than 60 young people (Dutch and Bulgaria) learning about each others cuture, traditions, floklore. Working together their cultural differences were overcome and frendships were made.
