Seka ["Sister"]: affectionate Serbo-Croatian term; SEKA abbreviation of seminarna kuca ["House of Seminars"]; also a House for Seminars and Recreation for traumatised women and children living in the war zones of former Yugoslavia on the Adriatic island Brac (Croatia); where women and children of all ethnic and religious groups can meet in an atmosphere of respect, openness and mutual understanding - in a grass roots contribution to a peace process; The project sprang out of the relationship between the women's co-operatives working in the Hamburg area (Sukaina and SEKA Hamburg e.V.) and women's projects in Bosnia-Hercegovina, Croatia and Serbia that had been formed in response to the war.

The SEKA project is a glimpse of light at the end of the tunnel for those Women and children who get the chance to come out of the former war zones and stay at this beautifully situated house. Here they can generate new energy and hope to face their daily struggle when returning to their homes. "Even though the war itself might be over, it has yet to end for those who survived it".
