Meet Amina Šurkovic, one of the 12 participants in “The Mediterranean: a Frontier of Peace, Education and Reconciliation” project – as a part of this project, Amina will have the opportunity to enroll at the “Conflict Management and Humanitarian Action” Master Program at the University of Siena, and later be employed at the War Childhood Museum.
Amina joined the WCM Team in 2018 as a volunteer, contributing greatly to various activities and processes at our Museum, which is why we are delighted to have been able to secure this opportunity for her through our collaboration with the Italian Episcopal Conference (CEI). The scholarship covers tuition fees, living costs, but also the necessary funds for Amina to carry out a project of her own within the WCM upon returning from Italy, that is, work with us for at least one year.
The aim of this project, realized in cooperation with the Rondine Cittadella della Pace, is to help young people to connect with each other and strengthen their own capacities, so that they can bring new knowledge and energy to their communities, as well as contribute to the peacebuilding and reconciliation processes by implementing a social impact project.
We wish Amina all the best with her studies, and we are looking forward to have her continue her personal and professional development with us next year.
