About Projekt Duga

Projekt Duga means: Project Rainbow where the rainbow represents the sign of a friendship alliance as we encountered with Noah after the flood. Our project is located in the "Kordun" (former Krajina), an abandoned region in the interior of Croatia, close to the border with Bosnia. The region is characterized by the presence of minorities: Serbian returnees, Croatian Muslims and Croats who fled from Bosnia after the war. It is a forgotten region. In everything a great challenge to work on reconciliation and a friendship alliance. The project has been active since May 1999 and focuses on single elderly people and children and young people.

The project has its own camping area and can accommodate 30 to 40 people, has 3 camping cabins with 5 beds each, some caravans, a simple kitchen and café in a stable ("Café Bethlehem"). The camping site is maintained by the local youth and children of "De Leeuwenend" and by the groups that come to visit us.

History

Projekt Duga started in 1999 as an initiative of Dutch and Croatian volunteers from different churches. At the moment the project is mainly supported by the Evangelical Congregation Jonah in Ede, but volunteers are participants from different (types of) churches.

Bootcamp programming in Croatia

Written by  Wednesday, 30 August 2017 14:33

The new plan is to start Boot Camps at the project location in Croatia from the summer of 2018.

This idea originated at the ROC (MBO training for Application Developer) where Meindert is a teacher for the subjects Web development (HTML / CSS) and programming (PHP / MYSQL). Students and pupils in the Netherlands seem to find it increasingly difficult to be motivated and concentrated on one task. By offering them a curriculum in "The Middle of Nowhere" with us in Croatia, we offer them an opportunity to gain knowledge in their field without distraction but in an adventurous way.

Until now we received groups who came to Croatia on their own initiative and with their own plans. We often provided not only their stay but also all meals. As a project we hardly earned anything from it. We would very much like to continue to receive these types of groups. But at the organization of Bootcamps, we are the ones who provide the complete program. By asking a fair price for a week of instruction, accommodation (including all meals), there is a possibility to recoup more than the costs as a project. The earnings can then be used to finance other projects such as summer camps, elderly care, Christmas packages and the development of the youth campsite.

You can help us by promoting this idea through the Social media. Use the buttons above or below this article.

Thank you.
