The Perfect Circle NGO (Savršen Krug) has by itself, started work on constructing an excursion spot for youths in Veliki Gorenec, Bednja. Due to previous unsuccessful attempts to acquire funds for this endeavor, we have decided to roll up our sleeves and get hands on with this task ourselves!
The Perfect Circle NGO in Veliki Gorenec is a center point between three mountains: Ivanščica, Strahinjčica and Ravna Gora, at 320 meters (1050 ft) above sea level. A beautiful spot with gorgeous terrain and clean, fresh air from the mountains.
Until now, we have managed to renew an old bit of the house which can now take 4-6 residents, and we have successfuly initiated with the baby steps of the educational programs, which include activities such as: nature walks, archery, cooking traditional local dishes, making furniture out of a wooden construction and palettes, hand tool training, musical educations etc.
The project of constructing the excursion spot, is still underway! Construction in the current pace, without funding, will take up to 10 years, and the interiors will be complete with housing for 30 children and youth who will be able to take advantage of: a culture and sports hall (dance, sports, programming, meditation and breathing exercises, etc.), pub and kitchen, studio for music production and bands, bedrooms. Exterior activities will be: archery, hiking, gardening, mushroom hunting, cycling and MANY MORE!
Activists, fellow NGOs, friends and financial supporters of our NGO are able to stay in the currently existing spaces of the PC NGO in Veliki Gorenec with still many cultural and educational activities, as well as a traditional local kitchen.
