Croatia - Roma communities around Zagreb

Working with our partner "Gospel on the Go", we are seeing lives being transformed in Roma villages.

Overview

Building relationships with community leaders and local schools, Gospel on the Go started a program called "Bright Futures". The program mentors and supports children from Roma communities to help them complete primary school, and then to progress to high school. It is an intensive investment in young lives who can become community changers.

ENTER

When we enter a community, we seek to relate to and understand the community through the eyes of Jesus. This includes pre-training and ongoing on-field research.

EVALUATE and ENGAGE

We repeat a collaborative cycle that aims to work alongside others in the community to identify and assess both needs and resources. Alongside the community, we encourage initiatives guided by a strategy and help implement them.

EXPAND

As transformation takes hold in a community our role changes. We avoid creating unhealthy dependencies and focus on what Jesus is doing within the community. This typically leads to expansion as transformation impacts surrounding communities.
