The project is implemented by CARE International Balkans with five BiH NGOs, and is financially supported by the Austrian Development Agency (ADA) with funds from the Austrian Development Cooperation. The aim of the project is to provide partner organizations with infrastructural, technical and professional support, with a special focus on social enterprises, which employ representatives of marginalized groups.
The meeting will be attended by representatives of the Association of Cerebral Palsy and Dystrophy Patients from Goražde, the Association „Otaharin“ from Bijeljina, the Citizens’ Association „Budućnost“ from Modriča, the Luna Center for Responsible Democracy from Rudo and the Women’s Association from Bratunac „Maja Kravica“.
On this occasion, media representatives will be able to record footage directly from the OPZ “Žene” property, where women provide catering services, which CARE and ADA supported with the construction of a new kitchen, the purchase of kitchen elements and utensils, and the construction of the necessary refrigerator.
CARE International Balkans and the Austrian Development Agency strongly support social enterprises, which have only recently begun to flourish in Bosnia and Herzegovina, because they see them as an opportunity that regardless of disability, race, education, nationality, all have equal rights and opportunities in employment.
