Project »Watch out, mines!«

22.10.2010

Mine Risk Education Project named »Watch out, mines!« was implemented during the last two years in Croatia. Due to success of the project, excellent results and needs of Bosnia an Herzegovina, ITF decided to support the same project also in this neighbouring country which is facing similar mine problem and is lacking educational material for children.


The goal of the project is to educate the children and community about the danger of mines through printing and presenting of ‘Watch out, mines!’ picture book in order to reduce and prevent the risk of injury from mines. It is planned to print 25.000 picture books and distribute them to the first grade students and public libraries on the teritory of Bosnia and Herzegovina 


The project started in November 2009 and will be finished in November 2010 (upon the no-cost extension of the project timeline due to logistical troubles in Bosnia and Herzegovina).
