We are working on the organization of the paperwork and administration. Now we are also connacting with our donors what are our next steps ,we are being more close of starting to build our Peace Embassy.
We have been dreaming about the Peace Embassy for many years, but it costs a lot of money and because of that it is important to make even small steps but without mistakes. The process is slow, but with the help of many good people we have accomplished so much and we will continue until we achieve our goal.
We thank you so much for donating to our new project, through which we aim to build a sustainable peace embassy and realization of this project.
As you know, with the donation of a German supporter, CIM was able to purchase land in Sanski Most on which to build the Embassy.
The Peace Embassy is something we have been dreaming about for many years, a Community Peace Center dedicated to peace activities and all that our organization has been advocating since its beginning.
The Peace Embassy is a big project that costs a lot of money and because of that, every step is important for us to be made according to plan and without mistake. In order for the building's design to be impeccable, we are currently looking for an architect who will enable this. We also ask for the means by which the draft will be paid.
The process is slow, but with the help of many good people we have accomplished so much and we will continue until we achieve our goal.
We want to thank everyone who helps in the realization of this project.
The Peace Embassy is a long-term CIM project and is still in development.
We are still working on a final design and in the meantime we are looking for donors that will help us achieve our great desire and finally to begin building a center dedicated to peace studies and to all those who work on peacebuilding. The land on which we will build is regularly maintained, so we also had spring cleaning where our volunteers helped us.
We want to thank everyone who supports us and we hope that one day we will all gather together in our Peace Embassy.
The calendar tells us that spring has come, but the view from the window tells us that we are facing for couple more snowy days.
But that is not a reason for us not to develop our ideas and plans for the Peace Embassy.
We are contacting individuals and organizations who would support us in implementing building of the peace embassy. Also, we are creating a bussiness plan so we can have a better vision about programs that would be implemented in the future Peace Embassy.
Some of the programs and activities that will be part of Peace embassy are an English language course for children, a children's theater and a CIM volunteer club.
On behalf of everyone here at Center for Peacebuilding we would like to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and a fantastic New Year. 2017 was extremely productive for us, all thanks to you and your generous donations.
We continue to develop activities that will be part of the Peace Embassy program. In the past months young actors from CIM's Children's Theater "Life" have been preparing their second play for Christmas.
During the summer, our valuable volunteers cleared the waste from the land where our Peace Embassy will be, as well as the part of the river bank next to the land.
In September, we held our eighth International Peace Week where we had numerous workshops and lectures on peace-building and reconciliation as well as human rights, and our guests and lecturers were from BiH, Switzerland, USA, Colombia, Brazil and Ukraine. We hope that in the future we will be able to offer quality lectures and workshops at our Peace Embassy where we would provide better conditions for guests and lecturers.
We will keep you informed about the progress of our Community Peace Centre in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
We would like to say a massive, sincere thank you for all of your support in 2017. Your generous donations have helped us continue our work, and now CIM is growing into an internationally renouned organisation.
