Visiting the city of Tuzla in Bosnia and Herzegovina was one of the most unique and wonderful travel experiences I have ever had. We only stayed for two short days, but in that time met a group of absolutely amazing women.
The Roma Women Association for a Better Future hosted a conference while we were there, celebrating the completion of a project they had worked on in conjunction with CARE International. The project provided Roma women with the resources to empower them economically, by giving them agricultural resources or the products needed to start a business that would enable them to support their family's and their community's.
After spending just a short time with them we were moved by their generosity, kindness and welcoming nature.
