CBM focus area: Minorities

Before the war, Mitrovica was home to the 2nd largest RAE settlement in the former Yugoslavia. Shortly after the war it was completely destroyed, leading to en-mass exodus of the RAE community, many of hich today continue to live in the temporary IDP camps Cesmin Lug and Osterode in north Mitrovica. For this population group, CBM focuses on sustainable income generation projects, capacity building, cultural ctivities, and returns.

RAE Carpet Weaving Project

As part of sustainable income generating projects, 10 RAE girls were trained in one of their traditional skills: carpet weaving. These girls and young women will be enabled to earn a living through the skills learnt during this course. The current project is a follow-up course for a group of RAE girls from north Mitrovica region who successfully completed an earlier carpet weaving training course with CBM.
