The Sofia International Model United Nations (SOFIMUN) Foundation is an non-governmental organization (NGO), founded and registered in Sofia, Bulgaria in the beginning of 2008. The legal chartering took place right after the successful conclusion of the first edition of the first international Model United Nations (MUN) conference in Sofia, Bulgaria – the SOFIMUN conference in July 2008. The 1st edition of the SOFIMUN conference gathered around 150 young leaders from more than 40 nations from the 6 populated continents of the globe.
The SOFIMUN Foundation is established by an international team of young professionals and prominent specialists whose main aim is to contribute to the better understanding of the UN ideas and also to a better education of today’s young people. The SOFIMUN Foundation also works for the successful participation of the youth in international affairs worldwide.
After its establishment, the SOFIMUN Foundation started various projects, part of its commitment to the promotion of the UN ideas and the advanced education of the young people.
The priority of the Foundation is to engage the society, particularly young academicians in activities beneficial for their knowledge and for the international dialogue, while simultaneously supporting the intermediation between the young people and various organizations, scholars, representatives and authorities of international bodies.
The Foundation is governed by a President who is helped by the Executive Board.
