MFP 2018 Start

Mopeds For Peace 2018 Special Edition

Gymnastics Club Tuzla, Bosnia, – GCT 2.0

We are going back to GCT in Tuzla to follow up on MFP 2016.

Mopeds For Peace

mfpgustavMopeds for peace is a nonprofit project that raises money for charity.

You are welcome to come along and join the ride. The experience of taking part in a MFP ride is well worth every effort. You will see new things and places, meet new people and make new friends. But most rewarding is the feeling of that you have done something good for the children in our world.

The world is big, wars are raging and the need for help is overwhelming. MFP may look like a drop in the ocean, but for the children we reach, that drop will make a very big difference.
//Gustav Fröding
Founder of Mopeds For Peace

Background

PiaThe support from MFP 2016 to GCT has developed into a extended cooperation between the Swedish and Bosnian gymnastics federations. The plan for MFP18 was to gather additional equipment and raise more funds to strengthen, continue the cooperation and to help develop the childrens gymnastic activities in Tuzla.

The participants 2018 have all served as peace keepers with the Swedish Army in Bosnia. Roland, Eric, Pia and Gustav.

Tuzla has a special place in our hearts since we served during the war and we have memories that we will carry for the rest of our lives. The video below is one of those memories that will always stay with us. It is filmed by Gustav Fröding in 1996, please see it.

Gymnastics Club Tuzla

GCT

The Gymnastics Club Tuzla (Gimnasticki klub Tuzla) provides gymnastics training for approximately 140 children on two locations in Tuzla. After the war ended in 1995 a group of enthusiastic former gymnasts and fans of the sport have been working hard to revive the sport of gymnastics in Tuzla and provide physical training to children of different ages. Today children of different nationalities and ethnicities train together. Assistant professor Almir Atikovic describes how parents of children currently in training fought on opposite sides during the war. Today their children are best friends and training partners.
