BOA’s Christmas Drive: Supporting the Bulgarian Natural Sciences Olympic Teams Association
Тhis year the Bulgarian Outsourcing Association supported the Bulgarian Natural Sciences Olympic Teams Association (NSOTA) as part of the Christmas Philanthropic Drive. The purpose of the initiative is to achieve a scalable impact on a cause corresponding to the Association’s values and goals. The 2018 theme of the Drive was supporting young scientific talent.
