Tory MPs, MEPs and activists join Baroness Warsi on latest Project Maja in Bosnia

Project Maja is the Conservative Party's social action project in Bosnia and Bangladesh. This year it has returned to Bosnia and is involving a number of Tory activists and elected parliamentarians. They include MPs Stuart Andrew, Eric Ollerenshaw, Tobias Ellwood, Jacqui Doyle-Price, Iain Stewart, Brooks Newmark, Jessica Lee, Chris Skidmore and David Tredinnick.

MEPs include Dan Hannan and Syed Kamall. Dan wrote about his experience on his blog:

"I'm in Sarajevo where I've spent the past couple of days wrestling ineptly with saws, hammers and paintbrushes. The AECR and the Conservative Party have co-sponsored the refurbishment of a day centre for children with special needs. Centre-Right MPs from across Europe – from Iceland to Turkey – have been painting walls and building climbing frames... Initiatives of this kind do far more for European harmony than any number of EU directives. It can't be repeated too often: you don't have to be pro-Brussels to be in favour of European collaboration."
