SIF in BiH Anthem




The work of SIF in BiH is based on the following values:

1. Reduction of social exclusion

The smallest possible percentage of citizens excluded from social processes on one or several bases, due to disability, social status, nationality or sexual orientation. Advocating for and spreading the idea of tolerance and increasing general social inclusion. Striving towards social progress.

2. Human rights for all

The differences that individuals acquire or are born with must not be a reason for the laws and standards in human rights to apply differently to them in comparison to other citizens in society. Fight against prejudice because differences mean additional quality and value!

3. Stop marginalisation!

Working towards making the need for use of the term „marginalised individuals and groups“ gradually fall out of use and towards prejudice leaving gradually the minds of individuals and specific social groups!

4. Transparency and accountability

Adherence to legal procedures, ensuring a quality system in day-to-day functioning and activities and principles of good business in the process of awarding grants, monitoring and reporting – through own example and expecting the same from our partners.

5. Stronger NGO sector

Promoting the values of civil society with active and functioning NGOs dedicated to their citizens. Making civil society organisations more efficient in representing, protecting and meeting the interests of the population they represent through enhancing their capacities and work methodology and systematic changes in financing and role of non-governmental organisations.

6. Promoting a society of equal opportunities

Advocating for and promoting a society and systems of social support that not only provide the bare minimum for the functioning of marginalised citizens (e.g. in the medical sense), but also enable them to become equally included into all social processes, with an emphasis on their remaining possibilities and capacities to function from starting positions which are favourable and adapted to the specificities of such citizens.

7. Partnership of all

A civil sector recognized as a partner to the public and private sector in the decision-making process, implementation and monitoring of those decisions, and civil society organisations that have earned the full trust of citizens.

Our beneficiaries

  • Slobodan Tešunović, Bijeljina

    It means a lot to me to get employed within this project, it means security and existence for our families. In this way we are making an income and ensure years of service. The new equipment procured during this project, such as trimmers and a truck means better quality of work and better working conditions. This will probably create opportunities that we stay to work after the project ends.

  • Bojana Glogovac, Trebinje

    This opportunity for employment for five months within the project supported by the Social Inclusion Foundation in BiH means a lot to me. I was involved in work occupation. This is the first time that I am employed and that I earn some money.

  • Srećko Lalić, Trebinje

    Prior to this project I did not have an opportunity to work. I graduated from the high school of economics. This is the first time that I work. I am grateful for the trust I have been given and the opportunity to work. It means a lot to me that I have had the opportunity to get employed through this project.

  • Almir Bakić, Tuzla

    The greenhouse means a lot to me because I have been unemployed for years. I have been a person with disability since 2007 and I cannot find a job. The donated greenhouse enabled my self-employment. After spinach I will plant onion and lettuce, which I am planning to sell. I am grateful to the Social Inclusion Foundation in BiH and the association "BOSPER" for enabling people like me to achieve something on their own.

  • Šefik Čajić, Tuzla

    I have been retired for 10 years. I suffer from bi-polar depression. Work at a greenhouse is a kind of occupational therapy for me. My wife and younger son are helping me. I will try to sell the spinach at the market. I was planning to plant tomato and paprika after spinach. Selling spinach and other vegetables will help to my family, because I receive a minimal pension.

  • Edin Korugić-Zahirović, Donji Vakuf

    There are 7 members in our household. I am a war invalid with 70% impairment and I am unemployed. The work in the greenhouse means a lot for the financial profit since I have three children who go to school, and incomes are very low. I hope that we will be able to sell vegetables and that there will be opportunities to employ more people.

  • Ćamila Hadžić, Donji Vakuf

    Work in the greenhouse means that I will have little better living conditions and that I would be able to earn some money for my children. Every income is welcome as we are many in the family, we are paying the rent, three children go to school and only my husband works. I hope there will be more opportunities for work.

  • Duška Ševa-Majdandžić, Banja Luka

    My business plan was procurement of a cow because I live in the country side. We already have one cow, but that was not suficient. Therefore I have aplied for the donation of one more cow, as it means a lot to my household for the financial income, and also because of our needs for milk, cheese and cream. By selling the products we are trying to make an income. Besides selling milk and milk products, you can also sell one calf per year and earn 1000.00 BAM.
