Publication Date: 15/07/2017
46 final evaluation of "Young Men Initiative - Promoting Healthier Lifestyles among Youth in Bosnia and Herzegovina by Challenging Gender Stereotypes". CARE worked in partnership with three experienced local youth non-governmental organizations (NGOs) from Sarajevo (Association "XY"), Banja Luka (Institute for Youth and Community Development "Perpetuum Mobile") and Mostar ("Youth Power"), which further built capacities of other youth NGOs in 10-15 locations in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH). The project’s overall goal is to increase the uptake of healthy, nonviolent and gender equitable lifestyles among young men and women in Bosnia and Herzegovina. In this project, over 10,000 young people in BiH were directly targeted through a range of activities. The intervention intended to address harmful lifestyles that impact both young men and young women. The project is supported by the Swiss Confederation represented by the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs acting through the Embassy of Switzerland in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
