Increasing Early Learning Opportunities for Children in Bosnia and Herzegovina

The program focuses on quality and software activities aimed at increasing early learning opportunities for children aged 4 to 5 in 45 municipalities, with special attention to vulnerable children such as Roma children and children with developmental delays and disabilities. The program seeks to directly benefit over 7,000 children aged 4-5, out of which around 400 are Roma children and 350 children with developmental delays and disabilities. It will also benefit pre-school teachers, staff from pedagogical institutes and parents/caregivers in 45 municipalities.
