Habitat Bulgaria has been working on selecting the right beneficiaries. Meetings were with the Mayor of Kostinbrod, the Director of the Social Services Office and other representatives of the municipality of Kostinbrod were held to start the identification process. After an information dissemination campaign in Kostinbrod and the neighboring villages, three different meetings with potential interested families were held. The opportunity was then extended to residents of the neighboring regions of Sofia – Nadejda and Vrubnitsa. Meetings with the mayors of those municipalities were held followed by information meetings with families living in those regions. A pool of approximately 35 families has been identified and will be short-listed by Habitat Bulgaria based on the selection criteria, the living conditions of the families and their need. The short-listed families will be further scrutinized by a selection committee set up of representatives of Habitat Bulgaria’s Board of Directors and the Municipality of Kostinbrod.
