Local Initiative in Stolac: There are Other Ways to See Stolac

Yesterday Amar Husnić, Peace camp and caravan participants has held a workshop called ”There are other ways to see – Stolac”.

Through an interesting game the youth has met. First, Blindfolded they met not knowing their names, religious affiliation or nationality. After they removed the ties, the participants discussed how they were feeling in this situation without knowing to which ethnic groups their partner belongs. Using this creative and experimental exercise they become aware of the prejudices they had. CIM director Mevludin Rahmanović spoke to the youth about the path od founding a NGO  and engaging in peacebuilding. He also presented the youth out work and the on-going activities of the StaR project.

#STaRBiH (Societal Transformation and Reconciliation) project is supported by USAID BiH and implemented by Karuna Center for Peacebuilding in cooperation with PRONI Center for youth development, Inicijativa mladih za ljudska prava u BiH – YIHR BiH, Mali koraci – Small Steps and Center for Peacebuilding.
