UK School Visits
Since the Foundation was formed back in 2009, schools in the UK have been vital partners in working to improve the lives of children in the Egipatsko Selo orphanage, Mostar.
Currently The Heathland School and the Chelsea Academy, both from London UK, make an annual visit. Around 30 students organise a range of events, trips and workshops for the children in Mostar.
The students must each raise £1000 to fund their trip.
The project has become a long-term strategic initiative with some of the students on the first trips who have now left school beginning to return to initiate projects of their own. The Mostar Summer Youth Program, another of the Foundation's major projects is one such success story - MSYP was co-founded by one of the students involved in the early visits to Mostar.
Often the students are able to exceed their fundraising targets and donate the extra money to the Foundation's projects.
