The UNICEF office in Bosnia and Herzegovina participates in this year’s Kid’s Festival, the largest event for children and youth in BiH and the entire Balkan region with an estimated number of 40,000 participants.  This year, UNICEF engaged a number of young volunteers to facilitate workshops and games for children featuring social inclusion.

The UNICEF stand included a video corner which screened “One Minute Junior” films that were recently filmed and edited by 26 children from all over BiH during a 5-day workshop in Sarajevo organised by UNICEF and the One Minute Foundation as part of the “Child-Friendly Schools and Communities” project.   Child rights-related cartoons and One Minute Junior videos from other countries were also shown.

A valuable opportunity for children to have fun and socialize while reflecting on such issues as child rights, education, and multicultural understanding

“Kid’s Festival is an event that is unique in its scale and aim to be inclusive of children from all corners and communities in BiH,” said June Kunugi, UNICEF Representative in Bosnia and Herzegovina. “It is also a valuable opportunity for children to have fun and socialize while reflecting on such issues as child rights, education, and multicultural understanding through the activities and UNICEF corner we have organized.”

The Festival started in 2003 bringing children from all over BiH together for a week of workshops, entertainment, sharing and interaction to develop appreciation and understanding of other cultures.
