Help us rebuild
Last year, heavy rains and flooding destroyed our workshop, preventing many women from being able to come to BOSFAM and weave. Learn how you can contribute to our reconstruction and donate now.

BOSFAM Bosanska tradicija,ljepota i rad

BOSFAM je nevladina organizacija koja okuplja zene, zrtve rata. Cilj Bosfama je da tim zenama pruzi mogucnost da rade i na taj nacin osiguraju egzistenciju sebi i svojim porodicama, ali i da se druze, razgovaraju i uce jedne od drugih. Bosfamov glavni proizvod je tradicionalni "Bosanski cilim", te se na taj nacin radi na ocuvanju bosanske kulture i na promociji bosanske tradicije. BOSFAM is a non-governmental organization that brings together women who are war victims. The main goal of BOSFAM is to give those women a possibility to work, so they can generate income for their families and themselves. But they are also here to socialize, talk and learn from one another. The main BOSFAM product is traditional Bosnian carpets, which are made to promote and maintain Bosnian culture and tradition.

Meet Nura for our first Weaver Wednesday! Nura is from Srebrenica and lost her father, brother, father-in-law, and brother-in-law during the genocide. Since then, she has worked with BOSFAM and, with the income she earns from weaving there, paid to put all three of her children through school.

Support Nura and other hardworking Bosnian women by donating to our campaign to repair our workshop at igg.me/at/bosfamworkshop! We are just $160 away from being 25% funded!
