be in harmony my friend
“Be in harmony my friend” was created to help teenagers to understand, overcome and embrace their negative emotions and facilitate their personal growth.
This project is a result of the first “HARMONY Project: Train the Trainer” program, implemented in B&H in 2021.
We believe that positive changes in society are only possible if we first make positive changes within ourselves. By delivering our “Train the trainer” program across the region, both the philosophy and implementation of our mission will spread to communities who need it most.
About the project
Students from 2 high schools in Zenica, B&H, participated in 7 workshops, divided into 2 phases. The workshops were focused on application of different methods focusing on processing and embracing emotions to facilitate personal growth and build stronger connections and understanding with the people in their close circles.
The students from the first phase assisted the teacher and the participants from the second, practicing peer-to-peer sharing.
These shared experiences taught them to accept their emotions and enabled them to become adults capable of dealing with their thoughts and feelings without being overwhelmed. Finally, all students took a trip to Sarajevo, visiting local yoga studio and practicing mindfulness techniques.
The implementation of this project was supported by the Rotary International (Global Grant) and NGO SANCHILD.

HOW IS THE LOCAL HARMONY PROJECT CREATED?
HARMONY Project is a platform for education of professionals, designed with the focus on individual well-being, interpersonal connections, and trust-building.
One HARMONY Project starts as the “Train the Trainer” program, where participants (trainees) undergo 7 training modules carefully designed by the international coaches, and results in the Local HARMONY Projects. Each project is designed by one trainee and addresses one issue or an important topic in their local communities, and is implemented by employing their unique skill set, SANCHILD’s values and the HARMONY Project mission to inspire positive changes. Finally, the projects may continue to be improved and implemented in the future, to create “long-lasting ripple effects that positively transform societies”.
