On April 22, 2014 a ceremony marking the completion of demining project in Novoselije was held  in the elementary school “Franjo Tuđman” in Lički Osik, Gospić.

Demining project in Novoselije was implemented based on the initiative from school children from Kastav, Rijeka and with funds raised through a charity project '7 kuna za sigurnu igru!' (7 Kunas for Safe Play). With funds raised  by school children a mine suspected area in Novoselije in Lika near Gospic was cleared and children's playground built.

Funds raised by Kastav school children were matched by ITF through matching fund mechanism of the United States of America - Office of Weapons Removal and Abatement in the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Political-Military Affairs. The ceremony was attended by U.S. Ambassador to Croatia Mr. Kenneth Merten, representatives of the American Embassy in Croatia, CROMAC , Croatian Red Cross, ITF, Office for Mine Action of the Republic of Croatia, the Lika Senj County and the children from the elementary schools “Franjo Tuđman” from Lički Osik,Gospić and “Milan Brozović” from Kastav, Rijeka.
