About this grant

The project goal is to strengthen youth engagement and activism on issues of transitional justice and human rights promotion. To this end, grant funds will be used to help the Youth Initiative for Human Rights – Bosnia, a newly registered nongovernmental organization in Bosnia and Herzegovina, develop 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. Specific activities will include training and mentoring for key staff on financial management and administration, establishing an office in Banja Luka, and strengthening the role of the organization’s governing board. 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.
