WHY WE HELP.
Jericho sees a future Bosnia and Herzegovina led by ethical, educated, and passionate individuals.
Bosnia and Herzegovina, formerly a part of Yugoslavia, is experiencing ongoing economic hardship. After years of civil war and destruction of infrastructure, BiH needs a light. The people of BiH feel forgotten, and the country is now ranked the 5th poorest in Europe.
The future is in the hands of the youth; they offer new perspectives, innovation, and a heart to move beyond the divisions of generations before them. Their potential drives our mission.
We haven’t tried to take on the world’s problems. There’s need everywhere, and it’s tempting to expand, broaden and alter purposes. We started with a specific mission in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and we are seeing it through. We work to maximize impact by making your dollar go further within our programs. The children and students we serve trust us to fulfill our commitments as we walk alongside them during their journey.
WE PROMOTE LASTING CHANGE.
We promote lasting change, not temporary fixes. We know a bunch of Westerners with good ideas can’t end BiH’s struggle - only passionate, empowered and equipped local youth can make lasting change. We unite students of all ethnic, religious, and socioeconomic backgrounds to provide an arena in which cultural barriers can be broken. An investment into the lives of youth is an investment into the next generation of leaders in BiH.
WE GET RESULTS.
We go beyond traditional programming to develop the gifts and strengths of marginalized children and students. We invest in youth through our four HOPE programs knowing that they represent a generation of untapped potential with the capacity to change the course of their country. We track, measure, and test everything we do. We stay flexible to adjust with cultural changes and best meet the needs of the youth we serve.
TO RESTORE HOPE IN BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA, ONE CHILD AT A TIME.
OUR CORE VALUES
God is alive, and we are called to practice His love in action knowing that each child is worthy of support, accepted and loved unconditionally.
There is no limit to what He can accomplish. We’ve been invited to partner with Him, to work alongside others, to make an impact, and to be a light wherever we are called.
“let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.” 1 John 3:18.
The world needs more people who are inspired to confront some of the world’s most pressing challenges. It’s easy to wish for heroes tomorrow, but we believe each one of us has been called today.
