Ambassador Johann Sattler, Head of the EU Delegation and EU Special Representative in Bosnia and Herzegovina officially opened today two newly built sports fields and a children’s playground within the Elementary School “Ivo Andrić” in the local community of Đulići, Municipality of Teslić. For the construction of these sports facilities as well as the purchase of additional school equipment, the European Union provided 200,000 BAM within the “EU for local communities” project. The primary school “Ivo Andrić” is one of the largest in the area, with approximately 400 students. New sports fields and school equipment will improve working conditions for all students while also helping to foster physical culture and promote sports among young people.
The activity, whose primary goal was to improve the quality of life of residents of Teslić, was carried out as part of the “EU for local communities” project, which was funded by the European Union to improve citizens’ living standards and strengthen the capacities of local communities in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The project is implemented by the Center for the Promotion of Civil Society (CPCD) with the partner organization Help.
The European Union finances numerous projects to improve the education sector in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The assistance is in the areas of higher education quality assurance, vocational educational training, career management, human resource development, and student mobility in higher education.
Furthermore, with the goal of improving education quality as one of the key elements of the country’s development, the European Union finances numerous infrastructure projects, such as the renovation of sports halls in 18 educational institutions in BiH, and will soon start with the project on the renovation of school facilities throughout BiH.
