ABOUT THE NGO
Formed in 2013, this international NGO aids in post-conflict societies with the use of humanitarian actions, psychological care, and therapeutic arts. Through arts-based peace-building programs, this NGO’s vision is to aid peace building between different ethnic groups in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
This NGO works to build relationships between adults who grew up with the aftermath of war. The heart of this NGO’s work is conflict resolution and communal reconciliation between separated people groups.
