Haris's story

Haris, 15, lives in Bosnia and Herzegovina with his mother and younger sister. He feels very strongly about violence and bullying. Having faced difficulties in his own childhood, he does not want other struggling children to feel alone. He is active in various groups which support children, and is always there to lend an ear and a helping hand, giving his fellow students the courage to stand up for themselves. As a result, many more children are willing to talk to adults about violence and bullying. Haris wants to create a worldwide community where nobody is excluded and every child has the right to play an equal part.
