Center for Peacebuilding

CIM develops peacebuilding programs to foster peace and reconciliation among different ethnic and religious groups in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Our activities are designed to bring about comprehensive social change focusing on youth.

What's up with the Peace Embassy?

In 2013 we've managed to raise $765 for our project on Globalgiving, and we believe it has been a major accomplishment. The project is vast and requires a lot of resources, especially financial ones, though every day we are more and more optimistic about its prospects. 

In the past few months we have managed to get professional business planning and analysis advice, and we are now working on developing a solid business proposal in order to also attract funding from big donors. Our team at the office and abroad are constantly researching the best and most efficient methods to generate sustainable income. 

Community engagement with CIM has also grown considerably in the past year, and many stress the benefitial impact of a local community centre for Sanski Most. Particularly we've looked at how this local run social enterprise will incorporate creating new jobs, particularly for local unemployed youth. Eco-tourism will play a major role in the project, and we hope to start some of our income generation ventures this year. 

With your support we can leave our desks at the office, and put some of our plans into action. 

Yours, 
The CIM Team

Designing self-sustaining programmes

With all the hustle and bustle created by the summer, our peace camp, and new volunteers arriving, we are now back in the office working hard. 

The Peace Embassy has been given priority and now that we have a structred and well designed business proposal, the volunteers have been working on researching the potential of incorporating a tourist agency into the plan in order to generate income and means to become self-sustainable.

The funding available will be looked at this autumn and the possibility may arise to be able to purchase a strip of land for building the emabassy right by the bank of the sana river, and in the close proximity of the town centre, which would allow better links with the community and easy access. 

Every donation we get for the Peace Embassy will be directed straight into a fund which solely aims to build a self-sustainable social enterprise which will allow us to continue the crucial work needed in Bosnia, in the current situation where funding is getting more and more scarce. 

In Peace,

We'll be back

Dear all, 

We have not managed to make considerable progress on this project in the past few months. We have secured funding for it, though we would like to improve it first, check witht he donor if they are ok with the changes and then start the practical work again. 

We will therefore disactivate this project for now, and once we'll have more funds, and an improved action plan we will be back on Globalgiving. 

Thank you soo much for your support, so far. If you would like to continue supporting CIM, please do so though our other projects we have here. 

In Peace, 

The CIM Team
