HARMONY Project envisions a long-term, ripple effect of inspiring positive changes that contribute to peace and harmony in society.
HARMONY Project: Ripples are series of projects carefully designed by our HARMONY Trainees upon their participation to our HARMONY train the trainer program. Ripple projects address some of the most important topics and issues, these are curated by our alumni for their local communities. Inspired by the success of 17 local projects implemented 2021, and 16 projects implemented in 2022, our Alumni will continue using art, mindfulness and different educational techniques to overcome cultural, ethnic and religious differences, support trauma healing, promote youth activism and raise awareness about the environment protection, cyberbullying, domestic violence and many other topics.
Harmony Ripple projects provide a continuous support to the society and create positive changes in various communities. Our aim is to pursue the projects in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Switzerland and Sweden.
WHO ARE OUR TRAINEES?
From June 27th – July 3rd, 2021, we organized our first training week in Tarcin, Bosnia and Herzegovina, with 19 participants from 11 cities in B&H. Our trainees are schoolteachers, journalists, psychologists, NGO and social activists and artists.
Inspired and guided by our 13 facilitators, they created their own projects tackling key societal issues – cultural and ethnic differences and stereotypes, women and girls empowerment, human trafficking, sexual violence and abuse, emotions and well-being. They actively worked from September until December 2021, organizing training sessions, lectures, round tables, art events, publishing online articles, etc,
and have implemented 17 “HARMONY Ripple Projects”, reaching more than 46.000 direct and indirect beneficiaries.
