Baba Residence is an Ideas Factory initiative which connects urban youth with elderly from diverse Bulgarian villages. Participants, or residents, live in village elderly households for 1 month. As a result from the interaction between them, specific products, services and initiatives based on local knowledge and which answer to specific needs of villagers come out. The pilot issue of the initiative took place in summer 2015 in 4 villages in the Rhodopi Mountains: Dryanovo, Dzhurkovo, Manastir and Yugovo. 17 youths from various towns were staying there. In autumn 2016 the Residence was carried out with the participation of 10 residents in Kostalevo, Pavolche and Chelopek in Northwest Bulgaria. In 2017 the Residence took place in Lazhnitsa village in Gotse Delchev municipality, and in 2019 it brought 15 residents to the villages of Koshava, Negovanovtsi and Sinagovtsi near Vidin.
