About Us

CESI – Center for Education, Counseling and Research is established on 8th March 1997 - International Women's Day, in response to problems of the violation of human rights, in particular women's and minority rights, nationalism, militarisation, and the deterioration of economic standards in the post-war period. Members of several women's and peace initiatives founded it, all of which have many years of professional experience working with women war survivors. Many volunteers and activists contribute to development and achievement of our goals and activities. 

We were conducting varios activities in Croatia, and particularly we were active in geografically neglected areas affected by war, in local communities. In Western Slavonia we worked on project "Women to Women" and organized activities for women and also initiatied establishment of Center for youth in Pakrac. Experiences gained in this work were foundation for further advancement and realisation of activities for women and youth.
