Help Zak Ivkovic revitalize the place of his birth by aiding residents to make a sustainable return to their homes in northeastern Bosnia.

The place of my birth in Bosnia has been devastated in the war of the 1990s. Of the 700+ homes in the village of Pozarnica, in northeastern Bosnia, on the slopes of Mount Majevica, there were NONE standing at the conclusion of the war. While some international aid organizations, including USAid, have helped to donate building supplies and while some folks have returned to the area of their ancestry, the long term sustainability is looking very bleak. My hope for Vis Pozarnice (the Heights of Pozarnica) is that it can be revitalized through the economic impact on a small scale to give folks the necessary means to begin to use their land for economic gain through farming and livestock breeding. The funds generated would be used to purchase livestock and grow organic fruit and vegetables to sell on a green market. The goal is to make such an effort sustainable in the next 3 to 5 years. Please help me accomplish this goal with any amount that you can contribute. Thank you! Zak
