Projekt Duga means Project Rainbow. In the rainbow we see the desire of God to enter into a covenant with people. Our project is located in the "Kordun" (former Krajina) a deserted area in the inlands of Croatia, near the border with Bosnia. The region is characterized by the presence of minorities: Serbian returnees, Croatian Muslims and Bosnian Croats who fled after the war from Bosnia. It is a forgotten region. In all a great challenge to the power of the Gospel, the only message that can lead to genuine reconciliation. The project has been running since May 1999 and focuses mainly on elderly and children and youth.
At the moment we give particular attention to the children's weekend club (Lion Gang), the annual summer and winter camps, while we are looking for groups that want to visit us. The project has its own campsite and can accommodate 30 people. The campground is maintained by the local youth and children of Lion Gang and the groups that come to visit us. For 2016 we still have room for four groups. The purpose of the camping site is to make it a "Do-It-Yourself-Camp" and to offer a base for reaching out to the people in Croatia and Bosnia.
Samenstelling van groep begeleiders en vrijwilligers
Op dit moment (februari 2008) hebben we enkele aanmeldingen van eventuele Nederlandse vrijwilligers. Dit betreft: Elianne, Eliza, Abi, Mark en Meindert en Samira. Heel graag zouden we in contact komen met Nederlanders in de leeftijd van 18 tot 80 (iets ouder mag ook) die de uitdaging willen aangaan om samen met ons een zomerkamp te organiseren en als begeleider uit te voeren. Neem daartoe contact op. Zie daartoe "Contactinformatie". Helaas zijn Andrija,
