The Institute for Youth Development KULT is commemorating Orange Day – the day of fighting violence over women and girls on February 25, 12 pm, in front of the BBI Centre in Sarajevo.
The activists of the Institute for Youth Development KULT, with the support of the American Embassy in BiH, will celebrate this Orange Day through a flash mob dance with the choreography of the professional dance group “Fresh Generation”.
We invite you to join in and support fighting violence over women and girls in BiH through dancing. We would like to use this initiative and raise awareness of BiH citizens of the problem of violence that is rarely discussed. The 2013 research of the Agency for Gender Equality in BiH demonstrated that almost half of the research participants experenced at least one form of violence by the age of fifteen.
“The statistics is devastating. It is even more alarming that the recent research demonstrated that the problem of domestic violence in our country is increasing. That is why we have to constantly talk about this. We need to include youth as well, along with all the other social actors, in the long-term complex process of resolving this issue. That is why we will dance tomorrow! We hope that many citizens will join our dance” – stated Mirela Ajanovi? from the Institute for Youth Development KULT.
The UN Secretary General declared the 25th of each month as “Orange Day”, the day of reminding of importance of preventing, stopping and punishing violence over women and girls.
