Petar Proykov

Senior Development and Fundraising Specialist

Petar initially became a part of the education system 10 years ago. At that time, he enrolled in Teach For Bulgaria’s program “A New Way of Teaching” with a motivation to transform Bulgaria through his interaction with students. Presently, he firmly believes that Bulgaria can become an even better place to live and develop oneself, but substantial and purposeful investments in the individuals shaping the country’s future are imperative. This is why he is still a member of Teach For Bulgaria’s team. He is currently organizing events, establishing partnerships, and seeking funding to train and support the most crucial individuals in the education system – the teachers.

Petar has a degree in International Economic Relations from the University of Economy – Varna. During his studies he worked as an intern at the Municipality of Varna, taking part in the development of the city’s application for European Capital of Culture 2019. He then became a Vice-President of the local AIESEC committee, where he was responsible for developing the organization’s relations with partners.
