Iliyan started out building a name for himself in the UK, where his social venture, EZO, was named the best in London, by one of the largest cultural portals in Great Britain- Londonist. Iliyan’s creative and compassionate idea was a large independent library that worked to fight homelessness and provided free courses for the local community in one of the poorest regions of the UK- Barking.
In Bulgaria, Iliyan has been working to create multicultural bridging programmes to help the most vulnerable members of society. Part of the project was to make changes in the prison system, but the primary focus is on human trafficking, domestic violence and gender equality. All projects under his Bulgarian NGO, Art Angel, were 100% self-financed, by his business ventures in London, UK.
Nature preservation and sustainability are the heart and soul of Iliyan. With his book– “If you Meet Buddha Kill Him!”, Iliyan is trying not only to create awareness, but to initiate the set up of a coffee roastery between Thailand and Malaysia, in some of the most virgin islands.
Domestic violence is a scourge of society. Iliyan has been working to educate and fight against domestic violence in and outside of Bulgaria. Believing in the simple and universal principles of equality in all forms, access to education, housing, food and employment, Iliyan is now leading the charge for vaccination against COVID-19 in Bulgaria.
