At the Washington gala dinner held on Saturday and hosted by the Advisory Council for Bosnia and Herzegovina (ACBH), the Hastor Foundation was honored for its contribution to the development of education and youth in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
This event is of greatest significance when it comes to bringing together the business and academic Bosnian diaspora in the United States. This year, the former US president Bill Clinton attended this event and received the Lifetime Achievement Award. Many other distinguished guests were present, including businessmen, philanthropists, congressmen and senators.
Almir Jazvin, the long-standing member of the Hastor Foundation Board of Directors, received the accolade in the name of the Foundation.
“It is a great honor to have the ideas and values of the Hastor Foundation, as well as its overall contribution, be recognized by the Advisory Council for Bosnia and Herzegovina, and for us to send the message of 1.860 current scholarship holders of the Foundation in an eminent company such as this one. The Hastor Foundation encourages its scholarship holders to study, be devoted and work for their communities. We believe that the ACBH award is another confirmation of what we do, and it is a motive for us to continue working systematically on improving the educational system in BH”, said Almir Jazvin in his speech, concluding it by once again expressing his gratitude for this significant recognition and by inviting everyone to work together and develop a greater cooperation in the field of education, as well as the cooperation between BH and its diaspora.
Founded in 2007, ACBH is the leading non-governmental organization concerned with representing the interests of the Bosnian-Herzegovinian diaspora in the United States and advocating a unique, multiethnic and democratic Bosnia and Herzegovina.
