ImageIn the years 1999-2001 a few separate projects were implemented that focused on some of the problems in the area.

Later on more integrated projects were written that focused not only on difficulties of individual farmers but also on solving some of the structural, underlying problems.

At the end of 2001 an integrated programme was started, titled: Assisting Rural Communities in Bosnia - "to assist in the development of viable rural communities in the Sanski Most area".

Early 2005 a new programme was commenced titled: Progression in farming communities - "to continue in the development of viable rural communities in the Sanski Most area".

Since 2008 the work is continuing with the programme titled: Developing sustainable farming in the Sanski Most area.

In 2010 Agrinas-Bosnia was re-registered as a local NGO, Fondacija Most. Two years later in 2012 Fondacija Most was closed. A lot has been achieved as a result of 15 years of active presence. The district Sanski Most is now one of the leading districts in Bosnia regarding milk production, while Sanski Most hardly played a role in this sector before 1997.

The cooperative AgriSan, whose leadership mainly consists of former employees of Agrinas, become a dynamic organization with 52 permanent members in 2014. AgriSan provides all kinds of goods that farmers within the district need and is 100% financially independent of outside help.

The vegetable growers association Povrtlar, set up by Agrinas, is still active. The dairy farmers' Association, also set up by Agrinas, has become a leading association in Bosnia. Its president is also the president of the regional dairy farmers' association and has been on national radio programs in that function.

It has been considered to continue in one or two other districts, but this has not materialized due to lack of funds and manpower. The remaining funds of Fondacija Most have been used to set up a drug rehabilitation center, just outside the town of Sanski Most. This ls led by a former employee Samir Trnka and his wife Svjetlana. This center is entirely dependent on donations because no government subsidy was made available.
