Stjepan Krst rises from the ashes

Stjepan Krst niŤe iz pepela
 
Stjepan Krst: ĺupna crkva sv. Ivana Krstitelja odmah nakon rata - the parish church of St. John the Baptist immediately after the war.

The ‚ÄúGornji Kraj‚ÄĚ Association was founded early in 2007 to encourage and intensify the return and survival on ancient hearths. The organization is comprised of 5 villages of the former municipality of Stolac: Ljubljenica, Stjepan Krst, Gornji BrĻtanik, Donji BrĻtanik and Dabrica. All of these villages were almost 100% destroyed and devastated in the last war, and returning is difficult. Until now, not even one fifth of housing has been rebuilt, infrastructure is mostly destroyed, and electricity has not yet arrived in 2 villages (only partially in Ljubljenica, Stjepan Krst and Dabrica). There is a great risk of marked and unmarked minefields, all of which present a grim picture of life in these villages. But we have not given up or gotten tired of rebuilding and returning, and with that aim we have set up an association to break the deadlock and through the institutions of the system, lift this region more easily on its feet and return its prewar splendor!¬†

 Organization's mission

-              encourage the reconciliation process in BiH;

-¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† to encourage the process of sustainable return, especially of minorities in BiH, with special emphasis to eastern Herzegovina and¬† the HNģ;

-              finding opportunities for the reconstruction of destroyed housing;

-              finding opportunities to rebuild destroyed infrastructure in rural areas as a precondition for sustainable return (roads, electricity, water, telephone...);

-              finding opportunities for sustainable return, with special emphasis on employment in agriculture;

-              finding opportunities for starting small businesses and self-employment, with the aim of employing returnees and socially vulnerable people;

-              development and modernization of agriculture, with special emphasis on organic food production and restoration of livestock;

-              cooperation with relevant organizations and financial institutions in the country and abroad for the successful implementation of development projects at the local level;

-              moderate the use of natural resources, with special emphasis on environmental protection;

-              informing and educating members about new technologies in agriculture;

Udruga ‚ÄěGornji kraj‚Äú je osnovana poŤetkom 2007. godine da bi potakla i intenzivirala povratak i ostanak na stoljetnim ognjiĻtima. Obuhvaśa 5 sela bivĻe opśine Stolac: Ljubljenicu, Stjepan Kriĺ, Gornji BrĻtanik, Donji BrĻtanik i Dabricu. Sva sela su u proĻlom ratu skoro 100% uniĻtena i devastirana, tako da povratak dosta teĻko ide. Do sada nije obnovljeno ni 1/5¬† stambenog fonda, infrastruktura je dosta uniĻtena, elektriŤna energija joĻ nije stigla u 2 sela nikako (samo dijelom u Ljubljenicu, Stjepan Kriĺ i Dabricu). Postoji velika opasnost od obiljeĺenih i neobiljeĺenih minskih polja, Ļto sve zajedno predstavlja teĻku sliku sadaĻnjeg ĺivota u ovim selima.¬† Meūutim nismo odustali ni posustali od obnove i povratka i s tim ciljem smo osnovali Udrugu, to jest da bi stvari pokrenuli s mrtve toŤke i da bi kroz institucije sistema lakĻe digli ovaj kraj na svoje noge i vratili mu prijeratni sjaj!
