About this grant

The Centers for Civic Initiatives (CCI) works with local communities and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) throughout Bosnia-Herzegovina to raise awareness and understanding of democratic principles and political processes; help citizen groups and NGOs develop local advocacy skills; and facilitate advocacy networks and coalitions.Multiyear funding will support activities that include building public awareness of political structures; promoting community-based problem solving; and strengthening and expanding coalitions of civil society organizations and informal citizen groups. CCI, established in 1996, grew out of the work of the National Democratic Institute’s civic education and community organizing work in Bosnia.
