“For most rope access techs, the greatest opportunity they expect from life is the work at height on top of the world’s tallest structure. After i achieve that goal in 2003, I decided to go further and show the others why in Bulgaria rope access can change lives and go beyond the limits of the ever developing higher and higher structures. I believe in the power of example as a duty for all of us, and for bringing into Bulgarians’ attention that we can have more success. of uniting and follow the convent of our nation’s founding fathers and face the new future with innovation beyond imagination. Together we can overcome the limits in vertical and aerial rope access and the Charity #ForBulgaria initiative can accelerate the project.
Together we can show how charity fulfills dreams and how work brings results! Together we can achieve success beyond the limits”, says Ivan Kristoff
