The Institute for Youth Development KULT published its Annual Report for 2019 in the form of a comic book, and you can download it here. Don’t forget to share the Report with your friends!
The last year of the past decade was very important for young people in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
In 2019, young people drove change in the social, economic and political sphere. Their efforts contributed to the development of their communities. They prevented environmental disasters, created green spaces and transformed them into areas for socializing and learning. They created opportunities for their peers to take part in cultural, arts and sports events, they supported educational institutions and helped persons with developmental disabilities. They worked on reducing youth unemployment by starting businesses and hiring other young people, and by sharing their experience and knowledge about entrepreneurship. They supported their local governments in implementing youth laws, they actively participated in politics so that they can contribute to building a better future for all young people – and they had the Institute’s strong, wholehearted support. That’s why young people are superheroes in their communities!
In 2019, The Institute signed a very important agreement with the Ministry of Civil Affairs of BiH, which will result in a unique analysis of the position and needs of youth in Bosnia and Herzegovina. This ultimately means that state institutions will have clear and useful information they can use to decide how to organize their efforts to support young people in all aspects they need support with.
Some of the Institute’s partners in 2019 were: The United States Agency for International Development USAID, Embassy of the Kingdom of Sweden in BiH, European Union, Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in BiH, Swedish Olof Palme Center, German Agency for International Development GIZ, Ministry of Civil Affairs of BiH, Sarajevo Canton, Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Municipality of Ilidža, City of Sarajevo and 50 other local communities in BiH.

That’s why we’re walking down the road of creating better lives for young people in BiH.
