Pupils Armin Bahtic, Sadmir Kameric, Sakib Huseinovic and Ramo Muratovic presented the “Entrance reconstruction” action plan in Sanski Most yesterday, whose objective is to repair the entrance to the Mixed High School
, which has about 900 pupils who come from the entire area of the municipality of Sanski Most.
This pupils have developed this action plan within the “Support Mechanism for Violence Prevention and SALW Risk Reduction” project, which under the auspices of UNICEF BiH and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency has been implemented by a humanitarian organization Genesis Project from Banja Luka .
Armin, Sadmir, Sakib and Ramo are part of the research team of pupils, ages 15-19, who have since September last year, being guided by their coordinator Senija Jakupovic, diligently worked at numerous workshops and have explored topics of violence prevention and SALW risk reduction in their local community. Pupils stated that the entrance to the Mixed High School is in poor condition, unlit, not adapted for persons with special needs, with poor visibility and allows the possibility of bringing in the drugs and of inappropriate behavior that negatively affects young people.
The objective of these young people is to renovate the entrance, to adapt it for the persons with special needs, to reduce the occurrence of the violent behavior and to enable better control of the school entrance and the influx of drugs.
Project sponsors, UNICEF BiH and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency, will donate 3,000 KM for the realization of this idea.
The participants of the round table were also presented the one minute movies that pupils filmed within the project in Sanski Most, and which cover the problems of violence.
The “Support Mechanism for Violence Prevention and SALW Risk Reduction” project has been implemented since the first of July last year in six municipalities of Bosnia and Herzegovina and 16 Primary schools in the cooperation with relevant ministries and ends in June of this year.
