I've seen first hand what The Jericho Foundation does. Every penny donated provides for the education and well being of the children in Bosnia. I've been present for the tears of thankfulness of those kids who received that otherwise have nothing. They are the real deal & there is no better way to invest than a child.

Jericho Foundation is an organization that has a proven record of making a difference in Bosnia and Herzegovina. More specifically making a positive change by investing in the future generation that unfortunately is unable due to economic difficulties rebuild and grow the country tha once was before the war.

Bosnia continues to struggle and employment opportunities for high school students without college education is limited. Jericho Foundation provides hope and college scholarships to students from orphanages or financially struggling families. These students recognize the value of education and are so grateful to have the opportunity.

An amazing organization that helps my country (Bosnia and Herzegovina) by helping it's youth to get an education and a better future. Jericho is a family to all the students that receive their scholarship. I am their first student and am proud to say that since I have finished school in 2008 I still have that family and support that every person needs.
My country was in war and has its struggles after that. Scholarships and student loans are not available and it is very important for smart, talented kids to have a support in schooling.

Although I was not involved in Jericho scholarship program, Jericho had a great impact on my life via my lovely wife. I think that if it wasn't for Jericho I would never met her. It was my honor to volunteer for Jericho two weeks ago!

I am a scholarship recipient of the Jericho Foundation. I had a difficult childhood. My mother died when I was 17, my father was an alcoholic and my brother abuser. Because of that, I was forced out of my home. I wanted to grow up and to be an independent and successful person. That was my biggest dream, but they did not allow. They stopped me at every step, sometimes financially, sometimes food, sometimes in ugly words and often with violent behavior. Through it all, it was very difficult to go alone but my light was Jericho organization. My dream would not have been possible without the good people who support Jericho. Jericho organization has made my dream come true and I became exactly what I wanted. My life is a reminder to all young girls who grow up with abusers and alcoholics, a reminder that with good people like you that I fulfill my dreams. Jericho organization is my reminder to the world there are still good people who want to help others and not to lose hope in humanity.

As a graduated student who has receiving Jericho scholarship for four years, I can only say great words about Jericho foundation. For me Jericho is family. They helped me in so many ways. After first year of collage I wasn't able to continue with my education because of financial issues. Then Jericho helped me by giving me scholarship. Except material support, there were always somebody to talk with when I was feeling bad, having bad day or even to share my happiness after passed exam. Also, they gave me opportunity to visit America and work as an inter in American company. If I have ability to say 'Thank you' every day for the rest of my life, it wouldn't be enough to show my gratitude to Jericho. It really gives you hope to know that somebody, even very far from you, take care of you and you are not alone. Thank you Jericho :D

It is easy to see the direct impact your support makes on this foundation. I have had the honor of getting to know the incredible scholarship recipients Jericho serves and they are worthy students just looking for a chance. It is one of the most valuable experiences I have had with a foundation in my entire life. I am so thankful for the work they do, and getting to be a part of this story. To anyone considering offering their support, I would highly suggest the Jericho Foundation. They are transparent, honest, and like a real family! Thank you Jericho!

Jericho is an amazing non-profit serving the children and families of Bosnia. They have consistently delivered services over the past 15 years of me and my family supporting them.
I feel they use the support we have provided in an accountable responsible way. In traveling with groups trips I have seen the stunning results!

I can't believe there is an organization serving in the region the way Jericho is! As tragedies come, throughout the world, people retreat and move to the next issue. Jericho's commitment to the region has created lasting change and impact in the youth. It is vital that we stay in such areas so that a true difference can be made. Jericho is organized, intentional, impactful AND growing! I am so excited to watch their impact for years to come.
