Within one week this April, GEOTECHMIN GROUP completed a project under Bulgarian Virtues Charity Programme for reconstruction and repair of a children’s playground in the village of Chavdar and launched a new project Construction of a Museum of Archaeology and Ethnography “Mirkovo – Yesterday and Today”.

The idea to build the museum was proposed by Mirkovo Municipality and the financing is provided by the Group’s companies – Ellatzite-Med AD, Geotechmin OOD, Geostroy AD and Geotrading AD plus municipal funds by Mirkovo Municipality.

The first phase of construction of the museum will be completed in 2022. Finishing works will be executed in 2023. The new building will have two floors. The first floor will accommodate a visitor centre, an exhibition hall and three specialized traditional crafts workshops. Three exhibition halls and a multimedia hall will be located on the second floor.

With the implementation of this project, Mirkovo Municipality will be able to preserve and promote the region’s historical and ethnographic heritage, as well as the major achievements in modern times.

The newly renovated children’s playground in the village of Chavdar has been designed to meet the needs of the youngest kids in the municipality. It was reconstructed under a three-year framework agreement signed between the municipality and GEOTECHMIN GROUP to support projects of key significance for the local community under Bulgarian Virtues Program.

The project for upgrading the children’s playground includes the construction of new alleys, a fence, a wooden gazebo, new kid-safe designed equipment, and installation of modern outdoor lighting fixtures.

Bulgarian Virtues Charity Program was launched in 2018 at the initiative of Prof. DSc. Eng. Tzolo Voutov and the companies Ellatzite-Med AD, Geotechmin OOD, Geostroy AD and Geotrading AD. The program is intended to do good in society by organizing charitable initiatives and socially responsible campaigns, aiming to voluntarily support various important causes for local communities.
