From BCIF to Trag
It all began during NATO bombing, when Jenny Hyatt, social praxis consultant from Great Britain, gave a speech against the bombing of Serbia on a peace convention in Westminster Central Hall in London.
Thanks to her speech, the amount of over 2,000 pounds has been raised for supporting the local initiatives in Serbia and Montenegro. The Balkan Local Initiatives Fund (BCIF) was then established, with the desire to provide small donations to local communities in our country.
Since 2013, the BCIF has continued to operate under the name of the Trag Foundation.
Trag Foundation brings together people who believe that small changes can make a big difference. We believe in the desire and ability of citizens to initiate positive change in their communities. By offering them support in the form of both knowledge and resources, we encourage and support their active involvement in improving the quality of life in Serbia. Every day, with joint efforts, we strive to create a fairer and more open society.
And so for 20 years.
Twenty years of collaboration and synergy, trust and partnership, solidarity and tolerance, openness and responsibility, ideas, and innovation.
