By supporting social entrepreneurship in cultural tourism in central Bosnia and Herzegovina, the project will contribute to resolving the problem of women’s economic inequality, understanding the integration of women and the development of cultural tourism as a development potential. In cooperation with partners from the fields of women’s rights, tourism development and entrepreneurship, we will implement practical trainings to strengthen managerial and personal competences of women and upgrade the business incubator CEM Travnik with the program Women’s incubator for social entrepreneurship and tourism, for women who will develop and introduce socially impactful products and services on the market. To enable a continuous support for women entrepreneurs we will organize trainings for the strengthening of partnerships and other NGOs as supportive environments for social entrepreneurship for women and awareness-raising activities (conferences, promotion of women entrepreneurs) about the issues of women and social entrepreneurship in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the entrepreneurs themselves, and best practices. We will establish an intersectoral network to strengthen gender equality and increase women’s employment.
