As a part of this month's topic Customs and Tradition of BiH Peoples, the kids were introduced with the term folklore, as well as the traditional Bosnian attire. In addition, our guests performed some of the traditional Bosnian dances, such as the trusa, which we found to be the most interesting. After their performance, the attendants of The School of Friendship also "got into" the the rhythm and performed traditional steps of Bosnian dances together with the guests. On this occasion as well, the time we spent together was filled with children's laughter and quality fun. Both the attendants of The School of Friendship and the boys and girls from "Enver Mujki?"

The lecture was organised by the Institute for Youth Development KULT in cooperation with the Archdiocese Centre for the Youth Pastoral “John Paul II”.

Through interesting and detailed workshops, the students introduced each other with the problem of human trafficking present in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and promised to transfer the acquired knowledge to their peers and be a part of the global campaign when it comes to fighting human trafficking.   


Representatives of the Archdiocese Centre for the Youth Pastoral “John Paul II” thanked the Institute for Youth Development KULT for the invitation and to High School of Graphic Technology, Design and Multimedia students for their participation and involvement in the non-formal youth education for the purpose of educating and creating good and quality content for youth.

Boys and girls, attendants of The School of Friendship, visited the Svrzo’s House Museum on Saturday. All 25 of them have seen the traditional Bosnian house built in the late 18th century for the first time. The children were very interested and carefully listened about the lifestyle of an urban Bosnian family in the late 18th and throughout the 19th century. Their attention was drawn by many exhibited items from the mentioned period and they had many questions about the lifestyle of their peers from the period. 


The house was built by a prominent Sarajevo family, the Glo?o family, a member of which was kadi – Islamic judge-administrator – Munib effendi Glo?o, famous for his involvement in Bosnia’s struggle for autonomy within the Ottoman Empire. The family had no male heirs, and the property came to possesion of another prominent Sarajevo family, Svrzo through marriage. Svrzo’s House is a typical example of the architecture of that period, with its division into the selamluk or public quarters and the haremluk or private, family quarters. It was purchased from the Svrzo family, refurbished and opened to the public in the 1960s. Following the siege of Sarajevo, the house was renovated and again opened to the public in 1997. Further major renovations were carried out on the house in 2005, when the roof was repaired, the cobbles were relaid, obsolete service installations were replaced, and the painted decoration on the musandera (built-in range of cupboards) in the main halvat (drawing-room), which had faded over the years, was restored. The Museum has published a bilingual – Bosnian and English – monograph on Svrzo’s house.

A lecture was held at the Educational-Leisure Centre for Youth SPAJALICA on the topic "What are the causes and consequences of delinquent behaviour?" The lecture was held in collaboration with the Disciplinary Centre for Minors and it was intended for elementary school students of 7th, 8th and 9th grades from IlidĹľa. When it comes to delinquent behaviour, it is important to emphasize that it is a form of human behaviour that significantly breaks the social norms of a community and causes a social reaction of disapproval. This reaction is expressed in different manners, but always has for its purpose to force the individual, who behaves in a delinquent manner, to behave in accordance with the social norms. 


Year after year, there is an increasing number of juvenile delinquents in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which is why lectures such as this one are extremely important, for elementary school students and teachers, but also for the society in general.
