Bulgaria serves as Stone & Compass’s home away from home. In the small, central village of Stolat we own 2,200 acres of land that we call The Center. Complete with a 980 square foot restored barn, 18 bedrooms, a fire pit, and a pool, The Center is used for service learning trips, educational programs, international forums, and more.
Stone & Compass recently purchased a communist era theater in Stolat that is in the process of being restored. During our 2019 service learning trips to Bulgaria, students will help clean up and restore the theater. Eventually, it will function as a community and cultural center for Stolat by housing a library, museum, theater, free health clinic, and classroom space.
In addition, we are partnered with multiple Bulgarian entities to preserve archeological excavations, run service learning programs, teach English as a second language, and run free summer camps for local Bulgarian youth.
