ABOUT US

Naša Perspektiva (NP) is a non-governmental, non-profit organization established in February 2010. NGO currently engages 5 experts and is located in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH). From its establishment, NP is focused on the development of creative mechanisms in order to activate Diaspora resources with the goal to contribute towards the socio-economic development of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The organization recognized that by not engaging this group of 2 million Bosnians and Herzegovinians that live scattered throughout the world, the country is missing out on significantly contributing towards its socio-economic development. Next to its work with the Diaspora, NGO strives to provide its contribution towards a more favourable business environment for small and mediumsized entreprises (SMEs) in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
