Key objectives of the measure:

The Ministry has supported the project of the Special Library for Blind People and People with Low Vision entitled ‘From hobby to bread’, which is financially supported by the funds from FIGAP programme. In 2014, the Public Institution Special Library for Blind People and People with Low Vision of Republika Srpska, as an institutional partner, implemented the project ‘From hobby to bread’, which explores the possibilities of employing blind women and women with low vision. Through several workshops, the participants gained practical knowledge by creating jewellery. One of the objectives was to support their activism and to try to provide funds for their independent life. The knowledge gained in the workshops is particularly useful for young women, but it is even more important to create sense of usefulness in the society among this population group. After the workshop, it is foreseen to exhibit the jewellery made by the project participants, as well as to perform the play ‘Inner lights’ of the ‘Patos’ Theatre from Smederevo, which is entirely targeted at blind people. The project entitled ‘From hobby to bread’, which is intended for economic training and social inclusion of blind women and women with low vision, is funded by FIGAP funds, i.e. by the funds of the Programme of Implementation of the BiH Gender Action Plan. The Programme of Implementation of the BiH Gender Action Plan (FIGAP programme 2009-2014) is a result of cooperation between the Gender Equality Agency of BiH – Ministry of Human Rights and Refugees of BiH, Gender Centre of the Federation of BiH, and the Gender Centre of Republika Srpska, and its goal is to ensure sustainable implementation of the Gender Action Plan of Bosnia an Herzegovina. The programme is supported by a group of international donors composed of the governments of the Kingdom of Sweden, Republic of Austria and Swiss Confederation.
