Our activities by far and programme for next year

This years Peace Week was orginazed from 16th September to 21st September, we had a lot of activities and workshops in which young people and our volunteers had the chance to participate, learn new stuff and also help to organize our event.

In cooperation with Youth for Peace we had students from the elementary school at the farm where we together were searching food sources in nature in order to prevent poverty. We organized this activity to mark the International Day of the Fight against Poverty. 

We are also in the proccess of organizing next year two Peace Camps and two Peace Caravans.Since 2004. Center for Peacebuilding organizes Peace camps on which young people from all Bosnia and Herzegovina would adopt knowlegde in the field of peace-building, nonviolent conflict resolution and breaking prejudices and stereotypes. These camps bring young people from different ethnic and religious backgrounds, and provide a safe space for participants to create relationships with each other and to build trust.

We want to thank everyone who helps us educate young people in Bosnia and Herzegovina about the importance of preserving peace and coexistence.

Our Peace Farm - A Place to Be

Dear all,

Warmest greetings from Sanski Most!

First of all we would like to say that our Peace Farm is becoming increasingly active and richer on a daily basis. This summer at the Farm we sang, played, camped, socialized, educate, worked and much much more.

It has become the center of our events, so in June and July we had the Village Harmony from USA. Village Harmony is a group of artists who sing songs from different traditions, including songs  from Bosnia and Herzegovina and the rest of Balkans.

Also, this summer, CIM hosted WT2 - Working Together Winning Together - a camp for high school students organized by Youth for Peace. The participants of the camp stayed at our Peace Farm where workshops and socializing were held.
As usual, there are international volunteers at the farm that help maintain the farm, crops and animals that live on it.
Our garden, which is completely organic, has given many fruit thanks to the efforts of our volunteers. 

This year's Peace Week was also held at the farm where workshops and educations were held, and on the 6th and final day of Center For Peacebuilding’s Peace Week, 21st September were a celebration of International Peace Day. The activities started on the CIM Peace Farm around, and featured a gathering of more than a hundred people, which included local guests, visitors from other cities in Bosnia, and international volunteers. It featured a children’s play in the woods called “Little Red Riding Hood From the Wolf’s Perspective”, as well as rehearsals for the choir concert later in the evening. .

There is always something happening on the farm and we still have a lot of plans for the future. For now, we are extremely satisfied with the support from the local community we receive and we hope that we will soon raise funds so that we can start building a new stable for our animals.

Our greatest pleasure is that we receive positive feedback from people who have visited the Peace Farm and who always find a way to come back.

THANK YOU!!!

Peace and Love

Selecting the Peace Camp participants

It's late summer and we enjoy the warm weather and waiting for this year's Peace Camp.

Although our practice so far was to held the camp in August, this year is a bit different.
As you all know, all our activities depend on donors, so we had to delay it a bit. But no matter what, we have already taken a series of activities to make everything go smoothly and we are currently in the selection phase of the young camp participants.

As always, we want a diverse group, so we take this process very seriously.

The Peace Farm is ready to receive about 25 young people and provide them with a comfortable and secure environment where they will learn about peace, reconciliation, prejudice and how to fight them.

We want to thank everyone who helps us educate young people in Bosnia and Herzegovina about the importance of preserving peace and coexistence.
