Bosnia Peace March
The March of Peace is a three-day walk from Nezuk near Tuzla to Srebrenica (about 75 miles). It takes place every year in July to commemorate the victims of the 1995 genocide. 2015 marked the 20th anniversary of the genocide.
The route is the exact route taken by the refugees of the war as they tried to escape the massacre and over the years has attracted participants from all over the world. See a gallery of photos from previous trips.
We ask that all participants aim to raise at least $3,051 in sponsorship. All money raised will support WfWI's work with women survivors of war in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Why take part in the March of Peace?
- Walk in the steps of the refugees of the 1995 genocide from Tuzla to Srebrenica
- Stay in homestays along the route, meet survivors of the war, and hear their inspiring stories of survival.
- See the impact of Women for Women International’s work in Bosnia and Herzegovina, participate in training classes and visit programme graduates.
In 2013, Nicky Kinnaird, Founder of SpaceNK, took part and sent us this video message from the march.
