Two students won a contest for a videoclip under an European project in the field of education

Two Bulgarian students won the national contest for a videoclip related to the equal access to primary education. Their prize was a 16 day visit to the African country Eritrea together with young people from 5 other EU countries. Pavel Penchev and Evgeni Todorov are third-year students in the New Bulgarian University. Their videoclip reached the final of the contest together with 5 other clips. The contest was organized by Know and Can Association under a project, funded by the European Commission and implemented in Italy, Austria, Slovenia, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria.

Many children in Eritrea walk each day for 10 km to go to the bus stop and then catch the bus to school. When they are not at school even the 8 years olds must work in hard physical conditions, according to Pavel and Evgeni. Eritrea has been independent since 1993 when it separated from Ethiopia. The country is extremely poor, in most of the villages there is no electricity, many of the schools are built by foreign non-governmental organizations.
