Our summer activities..

We hope that you all safe and healthy, and we would like to proudly show you our work in the past few months at our Peace Farm.

We are so proud how much with the help of volunteers and donors we succeeded to the Peace Farm becoming the place we always dreamed of. We have renovated the house which we are now using as CIM's new offices as well as we renovated the garage. We continued to sow the garden like every year and maintain, and this year we also had a variety of fruits and vegetables.

We also have planted a new flower garden and arranged the lake and the path on the farm as well as the driveway of the farm. 

We had a lot of volunteers at the farm through summer, as well as a seven-day camp for volunteers all around Bosnia and Herzegovina which came to help us with the work we had at the Peace Farm but also enjoy the nature and to hang out and get away from the daily stress because of the pandemic. 

We also started a section called Eco-kids at the Peace Farm for children and youth all ages, to come learn about gardening, permaculture but also socialize and creat new friendships. 

We are now preparing the twelfth International Peace Week at the Peace Farm and we are excited to have it planned on the farm.

A hard working summer is behind us..

We hope that you all safe and healthy, and we would like to proudly show you the work that the youth from Bosnia and Herzegovina has done in this summer. 

Since January, Center for Peacebuilding has established four Youth Clubs in Sanski Most, Novi Grad, Kljuc and Buzim which are municipalities in the Krajina region and a part of the Youth Regroup! Youth for Youth in Krajina. From the start of the Youth Clubs, young people from these municipalities had the opportunitiy to participate in workshops and activities related to volunteering, youth activism, peace-building, entrepreneurship but also have movie nights, playing board games or just gatherings and socializing at the premises of the Youth clubs. Till now these four Youth Clubs have gathered more than 350 young people on their activities and implemented more than 220 workshops and gatherings. As a completion of the project, we organized a third seminar for the coordinators and participants of the Youth Clubs. The had the opportunity to reflect on the last seven months since the Youth Clubs are working, to talk about the opportunities they had as well as talk about advantages and challenges they had cross in the Youth Clubs. On the last day of the third seminar we organized a Networking event where we invited participants from the Youth Clubs, partner organisation, mayors and youth counselors from every municipality as well as the Minister of the Una-Sana Canton. The participants of the Youth Clubs had the opportunity to present the work of the Youth Clubs, the importance of them and what they positive stories which we collected. 

As we mentioned on the previous report our participants from the Upgrade for Peace seminar have started their initiatives. One of the initiatives was held at the as a seven-day camp for our volunteers. They have worked at the Garden of Opportunities, helping us preparing the house to be Center for Peacebuilding next office and had having lectures about First aid, creating wooden figuers as well as swimming in the beautiful Sana river. 

We are now in preparation for our twelfth International Peace Week, where we will have youth from all Bosnia and Hercegovina come to celebrate with us. We will have a lot of lectures, reflections and evaluation on the past year and time just to relax and enjoy our Garden of Opportunities.

Summer is coming..

We hope that you all safe and healthy, and we would like to proudly show you our work in the past few months in our Peace Farm.

In 2021 we started to work again in our garden together with locals from Sanski Most. We have offered our land on the Peace farm in Sanski Most for the community to plant vegetables and work on food production.

In recent months in our Garden of opportunity we have planted many vegetables and every day we see more and more progress We are so happy to see our garden becoming more beautiful and full of new fruits every year.

Our local volunteers were such a great help for us and also the Volunteers club in Sanski Most they also gave their help and support in developing the garden.

We are currently in the process of arranging the houses located on the Peace Farm, where one house will soon become the official office of the Center for Peacebuilding.

In the period of 21st till the 23rd May CIM hosted a reunion for previous camp participants but also their parents joined.  During the two-day gathering, participants and parents had the opportunity to discuss the impact of CIM's activities on the individual development of participants. We also held field work with them where we worked on arranging our Peace Farm and Garden where we and our parents were introduced to our plans for the future.

Summer is just around the corner and we are so excited for the upcoming activities that are waiting at the Peace Farm.
