I first heard of Jericho several years ago. slowly, as I learned more about the foundation, began participating in fundraisers. I was impressed with the mission of not only providing money for education, but building relationships and helping the students with developing life skills. Today I work part time with Jericho and serve on the board. I am more impressed every day with the Director, my fellow board members, our program director and the volunteers who take every decision as seriously as if they were making it for their own children.

I was Jericho scholarship recipient and I feel some words that describe Jericho foundation well. They are warm, caring, helpful, optimistic, helpful, trustworthy but then I also like to think they are hard-working and very practical. Love you so much, you are amazing.

I first experienced the "family" of Jericho personally in the fall of 2014 where I was involved in the leadership seminar in Mostar! The students of Bosnia are so appreciative of their education and are eager to learn and connect with the Jericho team. Relationships are ongoing and provide the students with hope and confidence in their future and in their countries future. A team is also sent to the orphanage in Bosnia every year to provide love and support to the children and to teach them about their opportunity for an education in their future....hope!!!! There are so many amazing volunteers and staff and board members that have been a part of the Jericho family for many years! I am so impressed with how these people walk the talk showing Christ's love in so many ways. The Jericho foundation rocks!!!

My wife and I have been involved with the Jericho Foundation for about 6 years, first as donors, then as speakers/mentors at the Student Leadership Seminar held annually in Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina. In the latter role, we have been able to witness first hand how the individual lives of the scholarship recipient students have been positively impacted by Jericho's influence.

In addition, one of the blessings we have received from our work with Jericho is the personal relationships we have been able to develop with a number of the students, so we have been able to see their desire and drive to be change-makers in their still war-devastated homeland.

I have been a donor to the Jericho Foundation for a year and a half. I had heard about the amazing work they were doing and wanted to be a part of it. I had the privilege of traveling to Bosnia and Herzegovina to work with the college students at one of the leadership seminars. I can say, first hand, that the money donated has a direct impact on these student's lives. There is no one more deserving of support. Students are changing entire family legacies by attending college and blazing the trail for a brighter future.

As a long time donor of over 15 years the Jericho Foundation has made dramatic and positive change in the lives of children and families in Bosnia. Their focus and mission has always stayed on target in utilizing funds and serving the people of BIH. Of all the charities I have donated to, this organization is the one I see the most direct results in the fulfillment of its mission

I am Jericho scholarship recipient. Without Jericho's help I couldn't imagine my future and the moment I am living right now. I couldn't count on my parents' and older brother's help. They couldn't find a job and living in situation like that is sometimes very hard to imagine. My mother and father have only the primary school and brother has high school education. My mum had a cancer and she wasn't been able to pay the drugs and medical treatment. Because of Jericho's support I will be able to help my family I will find a job and become a successfull person who will stay in Bosnia and restore the hope in my country.

I have been involved with The Jericho Foundation for about 5 years as a donor and traveling to Bosnia and Herzegovina to volunteer. These trips are so life changing and have given me the opportunity to make lifetime lasting relationships with these amzaing kids. This organization does exactly what it says it going to do, give hope to the children in Bosnia and Herzegovina that would not otherwise have it.
