Success stories


Humanitarian organization ADRA leads public kitchen long time in Sarajevo and Banja Luka, but the main desire of humanitarian workers is to help more socially vulnerable people, and beside meals to provide them a job from which they can live.

That is how a company named „Be a man“ was formed in which they have opened three humanitarian second hand shops that employ vulnerable women.

Two years ago, they began to collect clothes and that action was called „Bread of textiles“. They collect clothes in Sarajevo and Banja Luka. Then the clothes is gathered in storage by nine people who work there and are socially vulnerable. One of them is a former homeless man from Sarajevo, who now lives from his work thanks to ADRI.

From clothes they make rags intended for industry, mechanics and other craftsmen who work with oil. At the end of the last year they have launched a campaign with Bingo to employ persons with disabilities. In the first training five women with disabilities will deal with redesigning clothes.
