Mission

Balkan Sunflowers promotes local volunteerism and brings volunteers from around the world to work as neighbors and friends in social reconstruction and renewal. By organizing educational, social and cultural activities, we promote understanding, further non-violent conflict transformation, and celebrate the diversity of the lives and cultures of the Balkan region.
Our volunteers bring skills, experience and enthusiasm to societies that have been depleted by conflict, and the volunteers are themselves enriched by their involvement in community building.
Balkan Sunflowers' activities are intended both to achieve concrete results and to enliven and empower the participants and their communities. Through education, empowerment, awareness raising, play, art, sport, work and celebration, and in compassionate response to traumatic experiences, we serve the communities with whom we live.
