About this grant

The project goal is to strengthen youth engagement and activism on issues of transitional justice and human rights promotion. Through this project, the Youth Initiative for Human Rights – Bosnia, a nongovernmental organization in Bosnia and Herzegovina, is developing its organizational and programmatic capacities to empower and train young people to be more involved in shaping how Bosnian society deals with the legacy of war, addresses ongoing human rights issues, and integrates into the wider Europe. This grant increase will assist the grantee with a funding shortfall for this project. Registered in Bosnia in late 2009, the grantee was formerly the branch office of the Serbian Youth Initiative for Human Rights, a long-time Mott grantee.
