Farming in the land of landmines

“What we have done to our children and how we poisoned the country is terrible,” says Snjezana, a mine accident survivor.  “And what is even sadder is that we haven’t learned from that experience.”

Bosnia and Herzegovina

25 years post war, Bosnia and Herzegovina’s development has been hampered by political complexity and the lack of a common vision amongst its political representatives.

According to the Labor Force Survey, the unemployment rate has decreased to 18 per cent in 2018. However, the country is still facing challenges – our economy is among the least competitive in the region and every fifth person lives below the poverty line (World Bank, 2018).  

Based on the Child Poverty and Deprivation in BiH Report (UNICEF 2015), most children face some form of basic deprivation.

These circumstances call World Vision to respond.

For those 25 years, World Vision BiH has been reconstructing war torn communities, rebuilding homes and schools, and strengthening communities to better provide for their children.

Children in BiH call for attention

World Vision Bosnia and Herzegovina works to end violence against children. As part of this mission, within World Vision Global’s “It Takes a World to End Violence Against Children Campaign”, WV BiH organised our Vrijedni paznje (Invisible No More) campaign.

Created in close collaboration with children and youth from across the country, the Invisible No More campaign amplifies authentic voices and a clear message from children who emphasise their right to a healthy, happy life. These boys and girls want to be a part of the solution eliminating violence in their families, schools, and communities, focusing initially (but not exclusively) on the problem of child neglect.

Enhancing inclusiveness in schools and developing life skills.
