Project details

GORNJI VAKUF USKOPLJE

Our first project stared in the town of Gornji Vakuf Uskoplje in 2011. The divided town was not limited to a road. The town as the whole Balkan region is littered with reminders of a series of tragedies we cannot even begin to contemplate.

Many of the inhabitants are still understandably deeply affected by the attrocities that occured during the war and it is easy to see why they would find it difficult to associate with people who were, not so long ago, sworn enemies. In addition there are regional economic and political problems that frustrate the ideals and the wishes of the youth to move on.

Our aim is to help the youth and adults by working with local NGO's to provide a platform to come together, not to discuss resolution, or everlasting peace. But to simply enable they and their children have a possibility to integrate and have fun in a safe environment...and go some way to help bridging the divide.
