Bosnia-Podrinje Canton Goražde is now facing serious challenges in the field of skills development of labour, whereby one of the most important is a great misbalance between offer and demand on the labour market. Even though a demand for professional labour has increased, rate of unemployment is still above 37%. Therefore, Bosnia and Herzegovina and this canton need some new approach to education in order to improve the process of acquiring and developing skills necessary for having progress on more and more complicated labour market.

The Association for Local Development Initiatives has more than 20 years of experience in economic development, private sector development and empowerment of citizens to participate actively in the economic, social and political life of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Its cooperation with DVV International has lasted for a long time, and in 2018 these two organisations implement a project named „Assuring and increasing quality in adult education in the context of lifelong learning through creation of better conditions for implementation of adult education“.
