DAILY CENTRE FOR CHILDREN AND YOUTH IN POTOCARI,SREBRENICA

With the support of IN foundation – Foundation for social inclusion of children and youth in BiH, in September 2013, a project Daily center for children and youth in Potocari was launched. Three years in a row, for the children from the local community, Daily Center is a place where they can learn through play, discover the world and meet new friends. This is a place where they can eat lunch and drink tea, with socializing with peers and staff of Daily center. This school year, Daily Center registered 88 participants. Of the total number, 58 were registered as full participants.

Activities of direct work in the local community are primarily related to work in rural areas of the municipality of Srebrenica. One of the activities of Daily center is the professional orientation for the students of final grades of elementary school, which is implemented in cooperation with the first primary school Srebrenica. With the help from staff of the Daily center, kids have published all planned and carried out activities in their magazine “Voice of children of Srebrenica” where all their hard work was displayed. Through a series of structured activities within Daily center which are aimed at the development of practical skills necessary for everyday life, we encourage the development of children’s independence and improve social, cognitive and physical skills.
