In the village of Bulava, the necessity has become urgent to form a centre where children can carry out different sorts of activities. At present, the group dealing with contemporary dances and songs includes 72 children, while the traditional dancing group totals 30. The dancing groups are in need of financial support for equipment and costumes. The House of Culture building needs major repairs .

The Association of Indigenous Peoples at Bulava is seeking support for the children groups "Diro", "Nadezhda" and "Giva" for the purchase of equipment, and also for support in training craftsmen in the arts of wooden crafts and embroidery.
