Main Activities in the Field of Conflict Transformation
PRONI Brcko was one of the first organizations to initiate peacebuilding work in Bosnia-Herzegovina using youth work education and practice as a tool. Since 1998, PRONI Brcko (in that time known as PRONI Center for Youth Development) started educational programs for youth coming from different ethnic groups and religions in Bosnia-Herzegovina (Bosniaks – Muslims and Serbs – Orthodox Christians) with the aim of rebuilding destroyed “bridges” and breaking prejudices among youth in Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Those educational and peacebuilding activities from 1998 established the foundations for all PRONI Brcko’s future activities and results.
PRONI Brcko has organized more than 100 educational activities in the field of peacebuilding, more than 200 intercultural exchanges in Bosnia-Herzegovina and the region, and organized and supported more than 1,000 workshops where workshops leaders and participants were coming from different ethnicities in Bosnia-Herzegovina.
