Oct1Unemployment and underemployment — this has been the past and is the present reality for most of Europe’s 10-12 million Romany people. Substandard education limits opportunities. Discrimination narrows them even further. Consequently, unemployment in many Roma communities ranged from 75-99% even before the recession of 2008. Some go abroad in search of work. This disrupts families, interrupts children’s already tenuous education and increases the risk of human trafficking. Migration and perpetual poverty demoralize communities and destabilize churches.

Roma Christians want to bring hope into their communities. They believe that providing for their families in an honorable way is part of their Christian testimony. Because of these convictions, they have asked the CBF Romany Team to join them in changing the future for themselves and for their children. 

Pray with us for the right person to answer the request for an Economic Development Coordinator to join CBF’s Romany Team. Pray with Roma Christians everywhere who are bringing the Light of the world into their homes and communities.
