Essay about Association “Education builds Bosnia and Herzegovina”
On July, 28 1994 . amidst the hardest period the citizens of the capital of BiH had experienced during its centuries-long history, 58 citizens of Sarajevo – intellectuals, theatre employees, artists and writers, soldiers, policemen and ordinary citizens established Foundation/Association Educations Builds BiH, whose missions was children victims of war – our constant concern, a crucial mission reflecting essential consequences of the war – destruction of educational institutions and collapse of the educational system.
In twenty three years of work, Associations is on daily service for children victims of war, disabled and talented children, children of the Roma national minority and underprivileged children. The Association, with its door always open, has fully fulfilled the major part of its mission – we have primarily provided moral and then material support to children and young people of B&H. Association is not receiving any material support of government budget, but assure scholarship funds through membership, organizing humanitarian concerts, selling exhibitions, printing and selling calendars (we are doing that for 23rd years now) and books.
Material support was provided through:
Our greatest accomplishments are reflected in:
1. Project Overcoming Post-Traumatic Consequences through Psychosocial Rehabilitation, Recreation and Education of Children, Youth and Parents/Guardians
2. Printing and selling the calendar
3. Fond “Pavao Jusuf Urban Ibruljević” – scholarships
4. “With education into the future” – scholarships for children and youth of Roma national minority
5. Fond “Tanja Mihać” – scholarships
All of the above was achieved thanks to a great number of donors, members and friends from BiH as well as from Europe, the USA and Australia – individuals, groups, non-governmental organisations, institutions. We owe the past twenty years of existence and stability to you. We are proud of that fact that you have recognized the Association’s human aspect – the most valuable of all capital is that invested in human beings. This year, Association received 6th April award- highest award from city of Sarajevo, in which is your contribution too. Thank you for that!
