Rebuilding BOSFAM
In May 2014, flooding and heavy rains destroyed our weaving center. In 2015, with the support of our generous donors, the workshop was rebuilt, allowing the women of BOSFAM to return to work.

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.

DANAS (21.02. 2017) JE DAN MATERNJEG JEZIKA

SAČUVAJMO BLAGO KOJE SU NAM OSTAVILI NAŠI RODITELJI

Od 2000. godine u svijetu se shodno zaključku UNESCO-a obilježava 21. februar kao DAN MATERNjEG JEZIKA. Maternji jezik je dio kulturnog identiteta naroda, tačka prepoznavanja, različitosti ali i tolerancije i razumijevanja. Briga o maternjem jeziku je način dokazivanja svijesti kulturne elite naroda o vlastitom identitetu, ali i veoma osjetljivo mjesto tolerancije iste te elite prema Drugom.
