The JHS Foundation funds higher education studies for young women in their countries of origin. By helping these students build on their knowledge and acquire socially constructive skills and qualifications, we enable them to contribute to the progress and future of their communities.

JHS Local Heroes around the world donate their time and expertise

JHS was founded in Zurich, Switzerland in 2000 and is guided by a board. Board members represent various professional fields including education, law, finance and journalism. They work on a pro-bono basis and rely on existing networks of information so that operating costs are kept close to zero.

"I am proud to help young women around the world as the Administration Officer of the JHS Foundation. In my opinion, it is very important to support the education of these girls in their home countries. Thanks to JHS Foundation they get hope for a better future. The aim is not only to support an individual girl, but also to ensure they pass on the knowledge they acquire through their studies to their family and local community. 

It makes me happy to see the progress of the girls in their college or university degrees and even more the pictures we receive from the Local Heroes. And what I like most about the JHS Foundation is to see how many people work so passionately to make all this possible."
