Our vision for every child, Life in all its fullness. Our prayer for every heart, The will to make it so.
World Vision has been in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) since 1994, implementing relief, development and advocacy interventions for the well-being of children and their families, especially the most vulnerable. To date, World Vision’s interventions have reached more than one third of the country’s population and in particular children and have contributed to enhanced child protection and well-being, access to health, quality education and life-skills, as well as improved family livelihoods and, much needed, disaster preparedness in the communities we work in. At present, World Vision BiH has a team of 55 dedicated professionals, working daily for the benefit od over 20 000 children in 35 local communities in both entities of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
In the future, the focus of WV BiH will be protection and support to development of the most vulnerable children.
In accordance with survey which has a goal the most vulnerable children mapping, 35-50% of children are vulnerable to children due exposure to one or more vulnerability factors, for longer or shorter periods in their lives. More than 50% of children in BiH are exposed to some form of violence, while 48% of children feel irrelevant and neglected. Alarmed by this fact, VW BiH has launched a campaign “Invisible no more”, which is part of the global campaign “It takes a world to end violence against children”.
In order to help all children, we need the engagement all of us, local communities and institutions at all levels. Having in mind many difficulties that our society is facing, the children are often on the margins and very low on the list of priorities responsible for the allocation of funds, which is certainly a long-term and systemic problem that we need to work on.
WV BiH will therefore continue to work, more intensively with communities, partners from the NGO sector and system’s institutions on finding of systematic and sustainable solution for the well-being of children in BiH and strengthening community, invested in children.
