Through a five-year long partnership with a group of young women in Bosnia & Herzegovina, we have contributed to and observed the development of Arheon BiH. In collaboration with these stakeholders, we are building a tourism stream to the country to generate revenue. These profits will be redirected to create new business & job opportunities for local youth.
In further assistance to local youth, we are working on a project to connect youth globally, specifically in regards to our youth internship in the United States.
Arheon BiH is a cultural preservation organization that works with government entities to preserve monuments and historical sites within Bosnia & Herzegovina. Stone & Compass has provided both monetary donations to Archeon as well as support to make cross cultural connections with other NGO organizations in the Balkans.
