QC signs an agreement for an economic empowerment program

QC’s Income-Generating Projects in Bosnia

More than 100 benefiting families in the first half of this year

Through its office in Bosnia, QC has implemented several income-generating projects which benefited more than 100 families in the first half of this year. The projects included distributing dairy cattle, farming sheep, bees’ hives, fruit trees, and strawberry seedlings. Bosnian officials greatly appreciated and admired this year’s projects. 

QC's office also signed an agreement with the Ministry of Social and Emigrants’ Affairs to mutually finance the coming economic empowerment projects. QC will implement greenhouses’ projects, provide the farmers with farming tools, and plant the wide land areas with fruit trees.

These projects are important because they aim at relieving the poor families in the targeted areas (in the east of Bosnia where unemployment rates are high, and job opportunities are rare). QC wants to encourage the people to depend on themselves by offering them good jobs with monthly salaries; this will help them to generate their income without depending on financial aids. Thus, once the project is ready, many poor families in Bosnia are expected to have better income.

QC's economic empowerment projects have an essential and positive role in the lives of the target families and the society as a whole. Such projects will empowers decrease internal emigration and empower villages in their regions by offering them the needed means of production to financially depend on themselves. The community leaders, too, desire the implementation of these projects.

Continuous Efforts

QC has been working in Bosnia since 1994; it has helped in more than 110,000,000 QR and has regularly sponsored around 2,116 orphans, 78 needy families, 164 students, and 10 Huffaz (who memorize the Holy Qur’an).  It also tries to implement the important and necessary projects for the target families, and the society.

Bosnia is one of the European countries which suffered the aftermath of the war between 1992 and 1995. The war destroyed everything, including the factories and companies, leading Bosnia to poverty, and 40% unemployment rate – the highest unemployment rate in Europe. This resulted in huge economic and social problems which led to the country’s instability and the people’s emigration both internally and externally. Although Bosnia has ample pastures which could bring in great income for the families, poverty hinders its development.
