Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina
The association “Education Builds Bosnia and Herzegovina” supports the educational development of children orphaned by the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The association, based in Sarajevo, provides direct educational and living grants to hundreds of children from all ethnic backgrounds living in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
At the 15th anniversary celebration of the foundation "Education Builds BiH" in Sarajevo, Wolf Theiss partners Sead Miljkovic and David Ayres presented, on behalf of the partners of Wolf Theiss, a check for EUR 150,000. The donation to "Education builds BiH" was part of the donation of 16 Wolf Theiss partners in connection with the firm's 50th anniversary celebrations. The event received prominent television and print media coverage in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
"The charity 'Education Builds BiH', during its 15-year existence, has helped over 30,000 young Bosnians, many of whom lost one or both parents during the 1992-95 war in Bosnia and Herzegovina, to successfully complete their schooling and become productive members of society," said Sead Miljkovic. "The Wolf Theiss partners' very generous gift will help to provide this opportunity for many more young people in the future."
