BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA: Coming Together
More than a decade after the Bosnian war ended in 1995, Džemaludin Cauševic primary school in Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia-Herzegovina, is helping rebuild and reconcile a divided society. The school has adopted a new model of inclusive, child-centred education known as child-friendly schools. It provides a safe haven for children and looks after their health and well-being, providing free meals to those who need them and even a dentist for regular check-ups. It also actively seeks out children living in the neighbourhood who are not attending school. While some schools are still divided by ethnic origin, this one brings children of all ethnic origins together, giving them equal opportunities to learn and thrive.
