Summary

This project will provide after school tutoring, personal development and extracurricular activities to orphans and youth-at-risk to improve their grades, develop hobbies and interests to improve their life choices that enable them to maximize their personal potential; therefore, moving them from predicament and poverty towards stability and self-sufficiency. Through the afterschool program, we will help at least 200 children in four cities: Zenica, Bihac, Tuzla and Mostar.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Children living in orphanages suffer from an inadequate educational support and lack of higher educational opportunities that contributes to a very small number of children doing well in primary school, especially attending college. Currently, the country where they live faces approximately 46% unemployment rate; therefore, their chances for employment are bleak unless we give them access to better education, life skills, vocational training and personal development programs.

How will this project solve this problem?

Through our after school and tutoring program, the students have access to wide variety of projects. We help improve their grades and further develop their interests and hobbies, as well as provide access to some vocational training. Our project also gives them extracurricular activities that keep them busy and educate them through fun interactions.

Potential Long Term Impact

We will cultivate better educated and equipped young people to become active and self-reliant citizens in their country that otherwise could be a burden to the society. We believe that the path to lasting peace in the Balkans is through a robust civil society and our programs make possible for Bosnia's future innovators, teachers, policymakers and workers to succeed beyond their current expectations.
