In the first week of October we marked the International Children’s Week, hoping to raise awareness of the importance of respecting the rights of every child in Bosnia and Herzegovina, without discrimination, applying the principles in the best interest of our children.
The ASB representatives, Sava Pantelic, the Desk Officer for Southeast Europe and International Samaritan Cooperation, and Rusmir Hanic, the ASB SEE Project Manager, visited the Childrenโ€™s Educational Center โ€œGive us a Chance โ€“ Little Starsโ€ in Banja Luka.

Since this is the only sensory yard of this kind in Banja Luka region, the โ€œLittle Starsโ€ Center has become the regional center in providing therapeutic activities for the youngest population. Their services are now being used by beneficiaries with disabilities from other neighboring associations as well. This made them initiate the process of developing a formalized program for service provision to other similar organizations through the Center for Social Work in Banja Luka.
Our guest from Cologne did not hide his satisfaction with the highest quality services provided to the little ones through this type of therapeutic endeavor. At the end of the day we should never miss the opportunity to show our children how much we care.
The project โ€žConflict Stabilization and Prevention through employment promotion and better social services for vulnerable groups in the Western Balkansโ€œ is funded by German Federal Foreign Ministry Auswรคrtiges Amt ASB South East Europeย
