Since its founding in 1994, the Association “Obrazovanje gradi BiH – Jovan Divjak” has been helping children victims of the 1992-1995 war in BiH, invalid and talented children to successfully complete their education and become useful members of the society.
To achieve the mission – helping children victims of the war – we have opened the house at 4 Dobojska Street for those who need moral and material support.
With three employees and dozens of volunteers, we awarded scholarships for 7,052 children and youth in the amount of 6,358,535 KM and distributed school supplies, clothing, footwear, food, ceramic boards, computers and other teaching aids in the amount of 3,451,802 KM for 45,949 children and youth.
The game of numbers is very interesting, so we wish to emphasize that 4,462 children spent their summers and participated in peace camps and trips in 19 European countries, Canada and Uruguay, and the value of all that in fund terms was 1,177,923 KM.
More than 400 of them graduated from college and got jobs! We have organized more than 55 educational projects in which at least a thousand children and their parents have participated.
Since the school year 2005/2006, we have been providing scholarships to children of the Roma national minority. Our results have been achieved with the support of individuals, groups of citizens, companies and government institutions, but mostly through the work of the staff of the Association and ad hoc volunteers.
The Association is funded by printing and selling annual calendars and books, organisation of the charity concerts, and auction sale of the paintings, and membership fees.
