He feels glad to be able to use his professional skills to contribute to the work of an organization that helps the most vulnerable people to become legally empowered.
In the past I have worked as a volunteer in Leiden for De Leidse Rechtswinkel, where I gave free legal advice to clients with legal immigration issues, and in Amsterdam at the legal department of VluchtelingenWerk Nederland where I supported asylum seekers in their family reunification process. I have a bachelor of Laws from the Leiden University and am currently studying the master’s degree Transnational Legal Studies at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam.
I strongly believe in the potential of administrative and private law to empower people by pulling them out of the informal sector. This believe is my driving motivation at MJ4ALL

Predrag Jergić was born in Vukovar Croatia, and has a double citizenship: Croatian and Serbian. He joined MJ4All (when it was stilled called: International Alliances) in 2000 as facilitator in the field, working with the refugees in Serbia, providing legal and psychological assistance. In 2005 he returned to Vukovar to work as office manager on the cross-border program obtaining documents for refugees-helping directly thousands people. Since 2010 he is the head of program. This job makes him happy because it allows him to correct injustices that people have experienced due to the senseless war. His free time he spends in music - as leader of a small "tambura" orchestra.
Terezija Kovačević was born in Dalj, Croatia, and joined MJ4All (when it was called International Alliances) since the beginning of 1997. Her first job was as a domestic worker for a group of young humanitarians, which came to help us, people that survived a terrible war. With MJ4All’s help, she has learned to drive, to use the computer, to learn English, and she gained administrative skills. Soon she got her next job as data administrator, to document all refugees’ cases which MJ4All helped, and since 2010 she works as office manager in Vukovar in the Cross-Border Legal Rehabilitation Program. This job helped her a lot because it enabled her to help other people in need.
