Centre for Inclusive Education (Bulgaria)

The Centre for Inclusive Education (CIE) is a Bulgarian non-governmental organisation whose main aim is to promote inclusive school environment as a quality standard in education. We support schools in their development towards communities of shared values and vision so that children are encouraged to develop their capacities and overcome difficulties, so that teachers feel supported and confident that they are efficient and can face the challenges, and so that parents assume their responsibilities in partnership with schools. The Centre protects the rights of all children to learn together by working with the school as a system to build inclusive school environment, by conducting studies and analyses, by taking part in public discussions on policies for children wellbeing, by training professionals in the sector of education, by involving them in a professional community, and by launching events aimed at changing the attitudes of the wider public.
