WHI in Bosnia
Join us on a cross-cultural service trip to Bosnia! During the week-long experience, you will learn, serve, and grow with a team of adults who are committed to see lives and communities changed. Our vision is to empower, encourage, and engage local communities through education, and you can invest in kid’s lives by providing a fun, interactive, and educational English camp!
During your trip, you will encounter a new culture, undertake a new language, learn about different religions, and pray for others. Just as Jesus commanded us to love one another as He first loved us (John 13:34), you will be challenged to share His love with others outside your comfort zone. Your understanding of the world will expand as you discover more about yourself, your team, and Bosnia!

Experience a New Culture
Try new food, learn about cultural differences, and explore historical sites. Undertake a new language – You won’t master it in a week, but you’ll learn basic greetings and introductions. Most importantly, you’ll learn how to order the all-important beverage – coffee! Learn about different religions – Take a tour of a mosque, explore a Catholic church, and see how religion impacts national identity
