Our mission is to secure an active, long-lasting, and unified support to children with cancer in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Our vision that every child in Bosnia and Herzegovina has an equal and secure upbringing. We are a non-profit organization that offers services to children with cancer. The Association Heart for Kids with Cancer was founded in 2003 with a mission of creating best practices and opportunities in treating and supporting pediatric cancer patients and cancer survivors, as well as providing professional and financial help to children with cancer and their parents in Bosnia and Herzegovina. To this day, our ultimate focus has remained the same: providing help and support to pediatric cancer patients, survivors and their families. Our organization has been steadily developing ever since its inception. In 2016 we have built The Parents' House, a modern residential building with 10 apartments located on the premises of the Clinical Center of the University in Sarajevo, which provides housing for children undergoing therapy and their families. The Parents' House functions as a separate and independent project of our Association, and is financed solely through our fundraising activities. This has solved a major problem in our field of work, as the Clinical Center of the University in Sarajevo does not have means of accommodating parents of children undergoing therapy, most of which come from areas outside of Sarajevo. We document and closely monitor all our activities. As we are in a constant and direct contact with our clients, their feedback provides a valuable source of information for us. We use questionnaires, evaluation forms and pre/post interviews to derive quantitative and qualitative indicators in order to measure a relative success of our initiatives. All our activities are meticulously planned in advance, and monitored and evaluated along the way and retroactively. We rely extensively on short term and long term strategic planning to set the goals and objectives, and to determine the best way we use resources to tackle problems or exploit opportunities. Since all our operations are funded through fundraising activities and institutional and individual donations, we have put a special emphasis on transparency. We conduct external financial audits and employ independent consultants for all issues of any degree of sensitivity. We are proud to boldly claim that, on account of our dedication, achievements, and our meticulous approach to work, we enjoy a complete and unreserved trust of our clients, governmental institutions and the general public in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The Foundation "Zenski centar" ("Women's Centre" Trebinje)is a feminist organization, founded in 2002 under a name the Association for helping children and women victims of domestic violence "Zenski centar" Trebinje, and which in 2016 re-registered to the Foundation "Zenski centar" Trebinje. Foundation "Zenski centar" Trebinje is a non-governmental, non-political and non-profit organisation which works on the territory of B&H. The Foundation emerged from a need to publicly talk about violence against women and children which until then had been regarded as a private problem of an individual, and not as a problem which affects the entire society. Deeply rooted stereotypes and patriarchal attitudes on the position and the role of women in society and family have created a certain "taboo" in terms of specific relationships between men and women. Guided by a desire to contribute to solving this global problem, especially in the framework of the state level and beyond, activities are being implemented in various fields of life and work in order to provide the most appropriate answers to this challenge. Although our activities are focused on different areas (for example, social life, health services, social security, economy), and apply different methodologies, their aim is common: improvement of women's position in society of the Republic of Srpska, and whole Bosnia and Herzegovina. The vision of the organization is to improve the position of women in society and family, and a life free of violence. Our mission is fight for children's and women's human rights in all segments and economic empowerment of women. The focus of our work is domestic violence. Our leader (Ljiljana Cickovic) is at the same time a founder since she had suffered domestic violence. Programmes performed by our organisation are: -psycho-social support - self-help groups -free legal aid -person of trust -SOS hot line -counselling for economic empowerment of women victims of domestic violence We are currently working on: -establishing of a safe house for accommodation of women and children victims of domestic violence -establishing of an organic plantation of figs with a manufacturing character for a social agricultural cooperative "Smokvica".
