National information campaign “Equality means more”
The national information campaign is carried out under the patronage of the President of the Republic of Bulgaria and with the support of the Sofia municipality. It encompasses the period from December 3, 2017 (The international day of people with disabilities) to September 30, 2018. The campaign targets all stakeholders – the citizens who desire to take an active role in our society with a desire for positive change, the business, the institutions and the people with diverse abilities. We are happy and thankful for all envoys, who stood behind our cause and proudly declared, that equality really means more, and also that it doesn’t matter if you are with diverse abilities or not. Independent of this we are all equal and can be successful sportsmen, artists, musicians, IT specialists, community leaders and whatever else, but before everything else – people!

Sports marathon Run2Gether Bulgaria
During September 2017 JAMBA became a partner with the Thailand organization Clondisor Co, established by Tchachai Afibanpoonpon, organizer of the most successful mini marathon with a cause in the world – Run2gether. For four years this has been the biggest social event in Bangkok, Thailand.
This is a charity run in pairs, which aims to include and motivate people with diverse abilities. Every participant is a partner with someone else who needs his or her help to finish and overcome oneself!
Running if the most wide spread sport in the world and sport has the strength to give meaning and change in the lives of the sportspeople!
The people with diverse abilities have the right to be an active part of our society! They need to have desire and motivation so that they can show they CAN and they are here with us, TOGETHER!
Let’s run TOGETHER, because sport is health and always UNITES!
Trainings for our heroes
These nearly two years of JAMBA’s creation gave us the opportunity to see that capacity building in our heroes is the most important and crucial step to be able to offer them full development and a chance for an equal career start.
Without the necessary skills and competencies, we can not make their dreams for work and social integration come true. That is why our focus for the next 3 years is the implementation of training programs for soft and professional skills, foreign languages. We believe only by involving all stakeholders – business and the institutions we will be able to achieve this.
