THIS COMMUNITY IS ONE OF OUR SPONSORED COMMUNITIES click to learn more

We work in communities throughout the world. Each community is unique and its resource needs vary. All our teams are committed to transformation. The community highlighted here is poised for growth. They're eager to connect with financial partners, organizational partners, and new strategic personnel. You can play a key role.



Community Overview

The team in Uzghorod works in a variety of ways. They provide food for the elderly, work with international students at the university, provide medical testing for TB, and work extensively with the Roma people. In fact, they recently cleaned up an area to provide a park for the Roma children. They are also passionate about mentoring youth leaders and offering them hope for their future.

Our Response

By creating partnerships within the community, people are experiencing mentoring opportunities even in desperate situations. One example of this mentoring has occurred amongst the Roma people, Europe’s largest and most disadvantaged ethnic groups. This team recently partnered with an organization called Roma Integration to pilot a Roma youth mentoring course. After spending ten weeks with the Roma youth, the team introduced them to professional Roma doctors, businessmen, politicians, and pastors who had escaped the poverty of the camps. This instilled in them a hope that they could escape the vicious cycle of the camps. Hearing the stories of those who left the camps has encouraged them to pursue a better education.

OUR APPROACH
INTEGRATED COMMUNITY TRANSFORMATION

Expand

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.
