Why we are active in grassroots work
In Bosnia, twenty years ago happened terrible civil war, and a lot of people of all tree nationalities were killed and moved off their homes. A lot of victims were women, children and elders. International community, society, our neighbours from Croatia, along with non-goverment institutions helped with their fonds and their projects to help people rebuilding houses and institutions. It moved us, women’s NGO’s to organize better and to help each other to help family and elders through all kinds of projects. Our members realized that women are very important factors in rebuilding country, in social, educational, cultural and spiritual life. With volunteer and responsible work we supperted many roundtables, workshops, discussions and we had many participants in those activities, a lot of men,women and youngsters that argued about life problems, with great results.
With our professional and responsible work and achieved results we became recognizable in Bosnia and so the Assembly of the City of Banja Luka declared us as an organization of a public interest for the City and also last year we were invited to participate at the international conference of a women in Hirosima, Japan. Our moto and peace message is selected in a group of the best ten at the conference.
Our results are our main and best motivation to keep going and to keep working for the better future.
