Representatives of the San Pedro, California-based Libertas Foundation awarded scholarships to eleven pupils from across Dubrovnik-Neretva County on the 21st of September.
The scholarship recipients are learning in trades and professions in which there is a need for new employment. The awards ceremony was staged at the premises of the DE҆A association at the Lazareti district in Dubrovnik.
Libertas Foundation president Niko Hazdovac noted that the organisation's work aimed to provide assistance and humanitarian aid in general.
"We do not have vast resources, but what we do succeed in gathering we always invest in providing assistance to young people and the needy. We started with a soup kitchen at Boninovo, while of late we are turning more to students and pupils in deficient professions. We will certainly continue our work and hope to be in a position to provide assistance in the future," Hazdovac said.
The Foundation has provided scholarships for pupils in Dubrovnik-Neretva County for the past fourteen years, with scholarships going to future florists, cooks, pastry chefs and similar professions.
