About the Project

Croatia is the gateway to eastern Europe, with most of the land being used for farming and 1/3 covered in forestry it is known for its 1,185 islands along the Adriatic Coast. In 1991 it claimed its independence from Yugoslavia, but the effects of communism and years of war destroyed the economy and suppressed freedom of religious worship. The psychological and emotional scars of past wars and trauma remain.There is also growing economic insecurity, complete with inadequate jobs that earn a living wage and a rising number of people living in poverty.
