Our Name

Why ‘The Marble Project’?
Well, a lot of the purely descriptive alternatives were rather long and unwieldy, as well as potentially limiting to our future scope. Marbles suggest the innocence of a childhood game. Marble is strong, resilient and long-lasting. In a world in which so many media are simultaneously clamouring for everyone’s attention, a name that is memorable and arouses curiosity is no bad thing.
This, then, is the Marble Project. ‘Marbles’ to its friends. The sum total of the efforts of its volunteers and supporters, both here and in Bulgaria. Anyone – maybe soon to include you, can provide some practical assistance to people who need it. That is what makes us unique.
