SUMMARY

The main objective of this action is improvement of children's rights by strengthening acting of BiH network of associations whose work is based on children rights. Specific objective 1: Capacity building of the informal network of NGOs for joint actions and advocacy for children's rights in BiH through long-term perspective. Specific objective 2: Realization of activities in monitoring the implementation of recommendations given by the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child for BiH. Specific objective 3: Strengthening the capacities of children involved in direct activities of NGOs on promotion and participation in child protection.

RESULTS

All activities realised as planned, with special credit to 10 children groups which after a period of education, have held actions in their communities. All activities have been presented in two brochures published in 4.800 copies. The project strengthened their network, but also each individual organization (network member) was reinforced by participating in network actions and presenting network activities in their long-term strategic plans. The network is recognised by the government authorities, and the most significant acknowledgment came from the BiH Council of Ministers inviting the contractor to delegate two representatives of their network to the BiH Council of Children. The network was invited to join and become member of international network ChildPact which advocates for better situation for children in member states and candidates. Official membership started end of July 2013. Three reports on monitoring of rights of the child situation were developed (shadow report for implementation of the Convention of the Rights of the Child in BiH).
