About women in Bosnia and Herzegovina
Žene za Žene
In 2015, our Bosnia and Herzegovina country office transitioned to become a locally registered, independent organisation. The team of Žene za Žene (which means "Women for Women" in Bosnian) provides graduates of the year-long programme with advanced vocational and business skills training, This helps women to improve their ability to earn an income and support their families.
In response to the ongoing crisis in the region, Women for Women International is working with local organisations in the KRI to support Syrian and Yezidi women who have been forced to flee their homes as a result of war and conflict.
