The America for Bulgaria Foundation was created in 2008 with the mission to help support the market economy and democratic institutions in Bulgaria, as well as assisting the country in reaching its full potential as a successful and modern European nation. The Foundation works in six priority areas – education and libraries, civil society and democratic institutions, art and culture, agriculture, the social sphere and cultural heritage and tourism.
Muzieko is part of the Foundation’s efforts to raise the quality of Bulgarian education and the competitiveness of young people by introducing new technologies, an improved educational environment, innovative methodologies and informal education.
The investment in Muzeiko amounts to $20 million – donated by the America for Bulgaria Foundation. Muzeiko will be the largest scientific-educational center for children in Eastern Europe. The America for Bulgaria Foundation will continue supporting the center financially after its opening.
