Donation to St. Kliment Ohridski high school in honor of the feast of Ss Cyril and Methodius, creators of the first Slavic alphabet
In recognition of 24 May, the day of the Ss Cyril and Methodius, Slavic literature and literacy, and through their disciples, of the Bulgarian alphabet, education and culture, Acronis donated 100 books to St Kliment Ohridski High School in Suhindol. This is the second donation of 100 books for a Bulgarian school for Acronis. The company aims to turn this practice into an annual tradition.
The 100 titles were chosen by the students and the school management to meet the purposes of the curriculum. More than 135 students will benefit from the donation.
"Education prepares us for the trials of life: it gives us the strength of knowledge, skills for professional activities, experience in communicating with people and institutions, and lays the foundation for future creative and career development. If education is the way to the future, then the book is the bright window to it. With the 100 Books initiative, Acronis shows that kindness and generosity are the most valuable currency in our insecure world," said Svetlana Ivanova, Director of St Kliment Ohridski.
Acronis sees the world's woes largely as the result of insufficient knowledge. The company emphasizes the importance of making knowledge more readily available for all to better tackle present-day challenges, and to use education as a tool for changing one's life or escaping difficult circumstances.
"Reading books helps children better understand the world around them. It lets them build up their moral values," said Plamen Toshеv, Managing Director of Acronis Bulgaria. "Even in the digital era, reading paper books is still important to support a child's imagination, creativity, ability to solve problems and self-respect. That is why we are donating 100 books to a school for the second time and we hope to keep this tradition in the years to come."
Suhindol, a small Bulgarian town in central northern Bulgaria, has 2,400 inhabitants. The St Kliment Ohridski High School has 150 years of history and cherished traditions. Its mission is to help students succeed, develop, earn, learn and grow.
