St. John’s Home
The Roma are an ethnic group in Bulgaria that has suffered persecution for generations. Due to racism and lack of equality, they face severe poverty and widespread unemployment which leads them with limited access to health care, opportunities, and higher education.
We cannot address human trafficking without addressing the compounding issues that allow exploitation to thrive, such as poverty, hunger, racism, unemployment, and the spiritual condition.
We seek to create a safe and secure family environment for young women who are unprotected to trafficking by providing a safe home, with opportunities to learn life skills and job training. We will offer such classes as English, sewing, basic cosmetology, cooking, gardening, business classes, etc. We also have an ongoing commitment to educate the community and raise up local leaders to identify and prevent exploitation and abuse. Educators are innovators.
- We emphasize the need to model a strong Christian family, with safety and provision of needs
- We are a loving group of people whose core values come from God and His Word
- We believe in seeing people the way God sees them with value, hope, and purpose and to provide opportunities and an “atmosphere of growth” for these God given gifts to thrive
