The Association of Women “MAJA” Kravica in partnership with the Association of Citizens “OTAHARIN” held round table “Common responsibility for community welfare” today in Bratunac.
Round table is organized within the project “Enhanced social protection by building capacities of the civil society organizations (CSOs) in Bosnia and Herzegovina”, which is implemented by CARE International Balkans and funded by the Austrian Development Agency, and its aim is to open a dialogue between the partners and improve the understanding of the specifics and potential of the development of social entrepreneurship in Bratunac.
– After Bijeljina and Modriča, it is time for a round table in Bratunac where representatives of institutions and the non-governmental sector were invited to promote the need to adopt a law on social enterprises as a basis for further development and functioning of social enterprises. With us today are representatives of Cooperative “Women” from Bratunac , which, in addition to the production and processing of raspberries, also starts with the catering service, in that way they create additional employment for women from hard-to-employ categories – said Branislav Tanasijević, CARE’s project manager.
In order to promote the benefits of social entrepreneurship for the development of the local community Association of Citizens “OTAHARIN” from Bijeljina in partnership with Association of Women “MAJA” Kravica and Association of Citizens „Budućnost“ from Modriča conducts activities in the local communities of Bijeljina, Modriča and Bratunac.
Social entrepreneurship contributes to the development and well-being of the local community by promoting social responsibility and supporting the most vulnerable members of society.
In order for social entrepreneurship to achieve maximum positive effect, it is necessary that other relevant actors in the local community, such as institutions, companies, non-governmental organizations, are directly involved in creating a favorable climate for the functioning of social entrepreneurship. The situation caused by the COVID-19 epidemic has once again shown that social entrepreneurship and solidarity are essential for providing timely support.
