Planned goals / results:
Networking of Caritas in BiH and Caritas in Croatia, strengthening mutual relations, deepening cooperation and partnerships, and mutual support at national and international levels
In a public tender issued from the Central State Office for Croats living outside the Republic of Croatia, through partner grants, Caritas BiH wants to strengthen itself through networking and joint capacity building with Croatian Caritas. Two national and 14 diocesan Caritas from Croatia and BiH are involved in the project. The planned activities are organising a Forum on Project Financing from the European Union Funds; implementing Caritas Bosnia and Herzegovina's annual campaign and to cover part of the administrative and project coordination costs.
The activities planned in this project have an impact on the positioning of Caritas in the society, strengthening the ties and relations of Caritas BiH and Croatia, and the formation of joint strategies for enriching the existing ones as well as creating new program activities. Both Caritas have their regular activities implemented and structural and programmatic resources cover sustainability. This project would strengthen existing partnerships.
