Project “In Pursuit of Democracy” closing ceremony in Vojnić

We successfully completed Project funded by the EU through IPA TAIB 2009 on 30th December 2013. This two-year project was managed by the CCI in partnership with Women Group Vojnić, Association Breza from Krnjak, Association Most from Perna and LAG Petrova Gora from Vrginmost.
With this project we established a network by the same name – “In Pursuit of Democracy” – which was joined by 22 civil society organizations from the area of Banovina and Kordun. This informal network aims to strengthen the capacity of civil society organizations in the direction of their professionalism and the best possible action in local community.
This project initiated whole series of initiatives in local community: from repairing the roofs of local organizations and institutions to cleaning neglected cemeteries, organizing children playrooms, rooting for organization of emergency medical services in Topusko, celebrating The Day of Elderly, and promoting ecology and protection of the natural environment and many others.
We printed a “Legal Guide for Returnees” with seven current topics on exercising the rights of returnees that helps all organizations in Croatia that deal with issues of returning, and those who work on questions regarding social rights in the community. We distributed several thousands of these Guides, both in country and abroad (Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Germany), so it could be handy in all future decisions on return.
Summer school of Democracy, attended by 167 children from 4 counties, was a very pleasant event both for children, youth and their parents.
Over five days we met a large number of interesting things in our country, experienced many challenges of democracy, discussed about tolerance, ecology, recycling and making sure that our environment stays clean and tidy.
We even set up 25 new oak boards next to the partisan hospital facilities at Petrova Gora and marked seven reconstructed mills in the area of Perna with these new boards.
With memories of this summer camp, we held an event at the Cultural Center in Vojnić for all children participants and those who have joined us later, and with a special singing and dancing program we distributed a book and a CD of memories from this camp. All those who unfortunately couldn’t make it to the event and didn’t get the book or CD, they can contact some of our associates: Ivana, Dušanka, Duško, Mirna or Predrag.
With the lyrics of one popular Croatian children song, “When the hands make light work…”, we found the democracy in the most beautiful way, and made a promise: “We’ll see you next year!”
