2016 has been an incredible year for the Center for Peacebuilding and it is all because of our incredible donors like you! So first of all we would like to say thank you, the generosity we saw given to us during this years Year End Campaign was astounding. We were so touched by all the donations we recived, and we cannot say thank you enough! 

Our plans for our Peacebuidling Camp and Caravan for 2017 are underway! After a highly successful 2016 we are looking forward to our plans for the following year! We have heard from countless peacebuilders on the postive impacts peacebuilding and our peace camps have had on their lives, and how many of them now want to dedicate their lives to building peace in the communities and country. All of this would not have been possible without your donations!

Year End Giving Thank You!

We at the Center for Peacebuilding have had an incredible 2016 and it is all because of donors like you, so we would like to start by saying Thank You! For the Year End Giving Campaign our project was selected as a GeoBlue project and we were so honored by all of the donations we recieved through that. 

The Community Peace Center plans are underway! The past few months we have focused on planning the landscape for the future Peace Center, this process has included clearing the land around the site and investing benches for the community. The Peace Center will be located right on the banks of the river Sana and we can already tell it will become a community center point for gatherings in all seasons! 

As we look into 2017 we would like to thank you again for the generous donations made during the past year and look forward to your continued support for the coming year. 

Peace and Love,

The CIM Team

Peace Camp and Peace Caravan 2016

Hello all! We at CIM hope you had a wonderful summer! The summer of 2016 has been extremely busy, but extremely fun and successful for the Center for Peacebuilding! In August the Center hosted our annual Peace Camp for Bosnian and Herzegovinian youth! We had 30 youth from all over the country come to CIM’s Garden of Opportunity to learn peace-building skills! We also hosted our first Peace Caravan! We hosted panels on peace building all over Bosnia and Herzegovina with participants! It has been a very busy summer, but a very successful and exciting one! 

CIM hosted young people from all over Bosnia and Herzegovina, from different backgrounds, for a 7-day peace camp! At the camp the young people learned peace building skills as well as lessons in healing and reconciliation. The young people also learned how to be peace builders in their own communities, with trainings in how to host peace building activities on their own. It was hosted at CIM’s Garden of Opportunities and was a great success for the future of peace building!

Peace Camp Activities

  1. Council: This activity involved participants learning how to speak openly and listening to each other with no judgment or interruption.
  2. Dialogues: This activity involved participants learning how they could influence their communities towards peace building.
  3. Identity Workshops: This activity focused on participants recognizing their own identities, and how to work with them.
  4. Round Table: The theme of this round table was “Why young people are leaving Bosnia and Herzegovina and what young people can do about it”

After finishing CIM’s Peace Camp participants travelled throughout Bosnia and Herzegovina on CIM’s Peace Caravan for six days. On the Peace Caravan participants hosted panel discussions in 6 different cities throughout the country. The theme of the panel discussions was “What youth can do to work towards peace in Bosnia and Herzegovina”. These panel discussions were held in Sanski Most, Glamoc, Sarajevo, Mostar, Milici and Doboj. Throughout the Caravan participants were able to learn about the history and culture of Bosnia and Herzegovina. In Sarajevo participants got to be a part of the Omladinski Film Festival, while in Doboj and Mostar participants got to explore historical ruins. The panels in all the cities were highly successful and sparked important discussions about peace building in Bosnia and Herzegovina. CIM’s first every Peace Caravan was a great success!

 

Peace and Love,

The CIM Team
