Representatives of CARE and 5 partners NVO from Bosnia and Herzegovina, within the project “Enhancing social protection by building capacities of civil society organizations (CSOs) in Bosnia and Herzegovina”, held a two-day workshop in Petrovo where they discussed the results achieved on the occasion of the completion of this project.
“This is the end of a three-year project. We have scheduled a two-day workshop to analyze all the activities realized so far and to see where we could have done better, to learn lessons and use them better in a future project. The partners are very satisfied with the achieved results, with new products, services, and the number of purchases of their goods from social enterprises, and they are certainly much more stable than in 2019, when this project started“, said Branislav Tanasijević, project manager, CARE International Balkans.
This project supported the Association of persons with Cerebral Palsy and Dystrophy from Goražde, the Association “Otaharin” from Bijeljina, the Association of Citizens “Budućnost” from Modriča, and the Association of Women “Maja Kravica” from Bratunac, in starting and or strengthening their social enterprises in which marginalized people get a job opportunity. The Center for Local Democracy “LUNA”, ie the Cooperative “Creative Vision”, was also supported.
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, everyone have equal rights and opportunities in employment.
