Pupils in Uganda learn to sing Bulgarian songs and dance Bulgarian horos thanks to Daniel Delibashev, who has established a school in the African country and helps local children.

Bulgarian Education and Science Minister Galin Tsokov presented Delibashev with a certificate of merit here on Monday. The two discussed ways of expanding the spread of Bulgarian culture, music and dance among students in Uganda, Tsokov’s Ministry said on its website.

With the help of donors, Delibashev has built a school with a kindergarten and a dormitory for about 300-350 children at 50 km from the capital Kampala. The enrolment is mostly orphans and abandoned children who are numerous in Uganda. With the help of songs they learn separate words and expressions in Bulgarian. For the time being, the language is not taught at the school, but there are plans to provide Bulgarian language instruction for children who want to pursue their studies in Bulgaria. At present, most of these pupils have Bulgarian sponsors who pay their annual tuition fee of BGN 390.
