From Puppets to Empowerment

About the Project

The Genesis Project aims to reduce the devastating impact that mines and unexploded ordnance (UXO) have on children and their communities throughout Bosnia and Herzegovina, and to develop awareness about the constant and long-term danger they present. From Puppets to Empowerment educates children about land mine risk through educational and interactive theatrical performances. The puppet theatre performances support the emotional, cognitive and social inclusion of the children and the audience. The children actively participate in the puppet shows by answering and asking questions. Children remember what they learned and bring the message home to their families and communities.
