The Hastor Foundation is a charitable, non-profit organization that, through its work, supports and empowers children and young people since 2006 in an effort to create the self-aware leaders in their communities. The basic idea and goal of the Hastor Foundation is to provide an opportunity for young people to participate in the development of their local communities and their own resources through their successful education and volunteer work.
The mission of our Foundation is to gather the available financial and human resources and to make them more equitable and more effective for the development of education. Strengthening of human potential is the imperative!
Ready for new challenges
The Hastor Foundation invests maximum efforts to prepare our scholars, whose education will end soon, for the challenges of the business environment and the labour market. The experience they gain through the volunteer activities has an important role for the future business success of our scholars.
Plans for the future
With its successful engagement, the Hastor Foundation seeks to expand its activities to other forms of assistance to young people and education institutions in the least economically developed areas in Bosnia and Herzegovina. In the future, the Hastor Foundation will continue to develop entrepreneurial spirit among young people thus aiming to activate their creative potential and motivate them to implement ideas and set goals in order to contribute to positive changes in BiH society.
Volunteerism and Community Development
Young people in the Hastor Foundation have the opportunity to participate in the development of their local communities and their own potentials through successful education and volunteer work. Scholars of the Hastor Foundation, our University students, are volunteering with young scholars in primary and secondary schools, helping them to learn and overcome obstacles in their education. Supervisors from the Foundation are assisting in the selection of institutions, topics and issues for the volunteer meetings.
Social benefits and fellowship
Meetings with scholars of the Hastor Foundation are held each month. Here they have the opportunity to talk about their personal experiences when volunteering, possible difficulties they face and they often have the opportunity to participate in the specially prepared thematic workshops organized with the aim to solve common problems in their local communities.
The Hastor Foundation is not intended exclusively for gifted children / young people but primarily provides an opportunity for children who are marginalized due to severe socio-economic status and the environment in which they live. Ever since it was established the Foundation is encouraging and supporting primary and secondary school students and University students from all over Bosnia and Herzegovina who are working hard, showing a strong will to succeed, have a need for financial support, and are ready to improve their lives and the lives of others through the education. We are convinced that the winners will always choose to invest in knowledge in their quest for life success.
