The Capital Municipality invested BGN 20 million (EUR 10.2 million) for the construction and energy efficiency of educational infrastructure, mayor Yordanka Fandakova said at the opening of the National Teachers Council in Arena Armeets Hall in Sofia, as reported by Focus news agency.

She pointed out nine kindergartens were under construction and 47 schools and kindergartens were being modernized. In Fandakova’s words, she is sincerely proud because Sofia never before had such development in the education system. The mayor stated that in recent years over 80 new kindergartens and three schools were built in the municipality.

“Investments in energy efficiency measures in buildings are important because this way we don’t only save energy and take care of the environment, but economize between 30% and 50% of the costs of schools and kindergartens for heating and lighting, which can be given to teachers and students,” Fandakova said further.
