Overview

The concepts of a peer counselling (PC) program and volunteerism are new for BiH. Prior to the war, persons with disabilities did not actively engage in social and economic policy reform, as they were isolated from society's mainstream and were not involved in decision making. In July 1999, ICACBR started a project intended to strengthen the capacity of victims of landmines and other persons with disabilities through PC. The project's purpose is to enhance rehabilitation services currently offered by the existing network of 38 CBR centres in BiH and 3 CBR centres in Republika Srpska (RS).
