European Development Foundation (EDF)


European Development Foundation (EDF) was established in Sofia, Bulgaria in 2011.

Its mission is to work for civil society development, creation of programmes and organisation of events, supporting innovative practices, education and training of children and young people. The Foundation also aims to social integration of vulnerable members of society. Since 2012 EDF has organised over 30 face-to-face trainings in the areas of foreign languages (English, Russian, German and Greek) and soft skills.

We have consulted young people on business plan development and promotion of non-formal and informal education and training. We have been involved in development of online educational platforms and a variety of digital learning tools supporting non-formal education. We organize and participate in various initiatives that promote volunteering and corporate social responsibility /CSR/.

Our future goals are to continue working in the fields of youth initiatives, continuous education and cultural exchange, and to create regional consultative and educational centres for supporting young people.
