After School English and Computer Training for Needy Children

Computer Skills Classes Help Break the Cycle of Poverty

BOSNIA-YouthPageFeatureBosnia children come to our free English classes after school each week and work toward parity with other children who can afford tuition and expensive classes designed to help them enter college.

computerBrothersAmar and Izet are best friends who were both born and raised in a Bosnia Collective housing center. Their families fled Eastern Bosnia in 1995 and have never felt safe to return. Amar and Izet and their siblings have only known a difficult life of poverty and need. For these boys and many kids just like them, Mercy-USA offers them a way to see a better future. Our after school computer skills and English classes are designed to not only provide hard skills needed to enter college or the workplace, but also mentoring and encouragement to work toward a future up and out of the collective center. These activities keep the students focused on positive activities and behavior.
