SANCHILD is a compound word which means “a dreaming child”. San is a common word in many Slavic languages meaning  “dream”. It represents our organisation’s aspirations, hope and willingness to bring positive changes through our actions. Child is an English word that symbolises open-mindedness, curiosity, and truth, while reflecting the trusting and creative mindset through which we operate.

“SANCHILD” expresses our belief that every human being is entitled to live in a world where their dreams become reality, where their dignity is respected, and where they can find harmony and well-being.

“We all have the seeds of basic goodness within us, We only have to nourish them”

Our mission is to positively transform societies, inspire and contribute to a culture of sustainable peace and harmonious living. This is achieved through our human-centric programs and our four focus pillars: education, well-being, personal and socio-economic development, and environmental sustainability.


Historically, people in the Western Balkans lived together peacefully, despite cultural, ethnic, and religious diversity. However, during the prolonged civil war of the 1990s, they experienced continuous violence and the traumatic experience of ethnic cleansing, rape, and torture. Therefore, we currently mainly operate in the Balkan region, where many young people live with the self-perpetuating cycle of post-war terror, enduring trans-generational trauma and fear of differences. However, we plan to grow and expand to other regions on local, national and international levels.

Our goal is to provide communities with transformational tools in an environment that promotes sustainable peace and inclusion. This will ultimately encourage human beings to reach harmony in themselves and in their communities.

Our approach is human-centric and permeates our entire work. This means promoting inclusion, diversity, equality, compassion, empathy and love for human beings and nature.

Our Projects fall within 4 pillars:



Social and economic development

Sustainable environment

Our Projects fall within 4 pillars:


Our main focus is positive and measurable development of societies. This occurs through empowerment of individuals (via educational and well-being programs) and facilitation of economic growth by promoting green entrepreneurship, innovative technologies and technical solutions. The creation of sustainable peace frames this initiative.


SANCHILD regards education as the prerequisite for global harmony and peace. Therefore, we aim to implement non-formal educational projects for all generations, to promote critical thinking, prevent conflicts, and build interpersonal trust and mutual understanding. Education is essential for the success of all 17 of the UN Sustainable goals (SDGs), and we acknowledge its vital role for peace and development.


With our holistic approach, we aim to support individuals in their process of trauma-healing, empowerment and building inner-peace and compassionate connection with their surroundings. We believe that we have three homes: our mind, our bodies and Earth, and continuous nourishment of all brings harmony, peace and stability in communities.



Taking care of the environment is one of the keys for prosperity. We aim to develop programs that will promote a green economy, mindful understanding of our responsibility to care for nature.


Our driving force is the belief in a harmonious world.
We dedicate ourselves to human well-being, operating through our values:


At SANCHILD we generate an immensely positive energy. We work with passionate individuals and are driven by our belief in the inherent capacity of each individual to shape positive change.


We believe in the ability to think without constraints, to see things differently, and acknowledge the rich potential for establishing links between different disciplines and ways of thinking.

Inclusion & Diversity

We live by inclusion and diversity that is our core strength to create safe space for all and drive multicultural dynamics leading to success of our projects, innovation and open-mindedness.


We are working to create services for human beings and the environment of tomorrow based on sustainable social and economic development, transforming ideas into social and technical solutions.


We believe that exponential progress is possible by acknowledging and respecting the emotions and beliefs of others, and by actively listening, sharing and supporting each other in our development.


We are on a quest for excellence to mobilise the resources available to develop socio-economic initiatives that will lead to the prosperity of human beings.


We believe that respect engenders a healthy relationship with others. It allows us to work collaboratively, maintain healthy dialogues and to resolve conflict with honesty and integrity.

Nature Connection

We believe that only through the protection of the environment can human beings imitate nature´s dynamics and flourish in a sustainable way.

We are committed to making a positive impact in society by contributing to the UN SDGs.

keep the light. – Theodore Roethke
