Born out of a passion for the therapeutic power of art, the candle and pottery atelier in Sofia (Bulgaria) offer four sheltered jobs for young adults with a high educational deficit.

These people grew up in a challenging family and community environment.

There is still a narrow line between the therapeutic role of their work and the defined program of learning and practicing employability skills. That's why we give them the opportunity to express themselves creatively and create products that are subsequently sold.

Over the years, the candle and pottery workshops have strengthened their business potential and products are sold to various companies at fairs and exhibitions or through various corporate social responsibility programs.

"The best thing about working in the candle atelier is the team, the people."
Rosen, CONCORDIA candle atelier Sofia
