Center for Peacebuilding

Our way is peace

As part of our interreligious dialogue efforts, CIM started organising an annual public iftar in Sanski Most. The aim was to bring together locals from all ethnic and religious backgrounds to invite them to join a Muslim tradition. Sharing evening meals during the month of Ramadan is an important tradition for Muslims in the local community, one which is often done with close family, friends, and neighbours.

Since 2010, our annual iftar event has grown. From being funded just by CIM and having under 50 people coming together in a local park, we have managed to organise this for 400 participants, solely on donations from the local community. In the beginning CIM did outreach and tried to encourage locals to make in-kind donations, however in 2014, the local community approached CIM and we had more than enough food, drinks, and equipment to organise the meal. Around 50 local volunteers helped set up and clean up after the event.

About Us

Today, the Center for Peacebuilding (CIM) stands on the former frontlines of the war, acting as a bridge between a past that few can currently discuss and a future where open dialogue can rehumanize the enemy and dispel the misinformation that acts as the seeds for hatred.
