The people of Bosnia and Herzegovina–a country already scarred by war and slow economic development–are still in need of help.
At 27%, the country’s unemployment rate is the highest in the region. Political uncertainties and lack of positive leadership are hampering progress. Many young people express deep frustration over the current economic situation and many see no future for themselves here. As a result, they are being drawn into criminal activities or turning to drugs and youth delinquency, all of which are on the rise. These young people are also more vulnerable to human traffickers who promise better opportunities abroad.
