Bulgarian Abandoned Children’s Trust

The Bulgarian Abandoned Children’s Trust (TBACT) is a UK-based charity dedicated to helping disabled and disadvantaged children in Bulgaria. It was founded in 2007 in response to the BBC documentary ‘Bulgaria’s Abandoned Children’, which documented the appalling conditions inside Bulgaria’s state-run orphanages and children’s homes. SRT’s grant supported TBACT’s ‘Baba Programme’, which finds retired women to act as surrogate ‘Grannies’ to children growing up in institutional care.
