Exhibition on wheels


Friends, are you satisfied with the urban accessibility in Sofia? Well, we are not, so we continue our efforts to demand Sofia Municipality to do this.

Smashing the myths on Dec, 3rd


In December 2014, the European Network on Independent Living, issued one wonderful and very useful book called Mythbuster. In it are busted all myths associated with the independent living and the disability, which persist in Europe and here as well. Center for Independent Living assessed the value and the usefulness of the book, as well as the need for such accurate reading nowadays in Bulgaria. In the occasion of the International Day of Disabled Persons (Dec ,3rd), we offer to the attention of our readers the Mythbuster translated into Bulgarian. We wish you a pleasant hours with the interesting and beautifully illustrated edition of ENIL and CIL.

Until now we only had a call from the office of MEP, Mr. Slavi Binev, today we received the following response from the parliamentary group of the Socialist Party.
