SIF in BiH Anthem





"Look how we live here, ask, are we guilty of it ... So many of us on the same side ..."

The Social Inclusion in Bosnia and Herzegovina (SIF in BiH) has, within the project "Civil Society Sustainability Program (CSSP)", for the sector human rights - marginalized groups, funded by the USAID - the United States Agency for International Development, co-operated with a prominent BiH writer, journalist and musician, Ahmed Burić, in order to create a creative and innovative way to raise public awareness of the rights and status of marginalized groups in BiH. Through forming of #BandNeMargini, the idea was to gather renowned names of the music world and write a song of the same name in order to acquaint the public with the BiH social image - either because of poverty, either because of war or civil disability, or for some other reason - in a completely different way.

On this occasion, in the studio of Damir Arslanagić, Ahmed Burić and Branko Sauka, former member of Gino Banana and Crvena jabuka, gathered and created the song. After that, the song was performed by Mirela Laković, Nina Babić, Halid Bešlić, Vlado Kreslin, Narcis Vučina, Dino Saran, Almir Kurt, Damir Nikšić, Elvis J. Kurtović and Ahmed Burić.

People should think and try to come out of apathy and say – no to the margin. The concept and the band-choir are of the same name with a mission to invite people to think and stand up. Getting out of a difficult material situation and depression is not easy, and it's a big work, but one can not last forever in it.

Lyrics of the song "NE Margini"

 Pogledaj, kako se ovdje živi
Upitaj, jesmo li za to krivi
u svakoj boji nađi nijansu
svakome treba dati šansu.

 Koliko ćeš ljudi usput sresti
na ovoj dugoj prašnjavoj cesti
Druže moj, idemo sjesti
gdje li ćeš spavati i šta ćeš jesti?

 Među njima tvoj je lik
Čovjek, radnik, umjetnik
Na početku svi smo puni mana
svako je srce rascvjetala grana.

 Toliko nas na istoj strani
i uvijek nam se isto brani
zapjevaj, kao sunce sini
reci: ne želim više biti na margini.

 Nema toga ko će reći
ko je manji, a ko veći
Nisu važne vjere, nacije i spol
već kako se živi – u tome je fol.

 Među njima tvoj je lik
Čovjek, radnik, umjetnik
Na početku svi smo puni mana
svako je srce rascvjetala grana.

 Toliko nas na istoj strani
i uvijek nam se isto brani
zapjevaj, kao sunce sini
reci: ne želim više biti na margini.

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.
