Believe it or not, transportation is among the least of the challenges Daniel faces as he learns. His family’s apartment is tiny, and he often doesn’t get the sleep and food that a growing teenage boy needs. He has no real place to study, and when he struggles in school he gets little support from his community. In Slovakia, only a handful of Roma make it past primary school.
For decades the Roma in Slovakia had only a bleak future, with most of them trapped in cycles of poverty. But slowly they are forming a new future, and students like Daniel have a big part to play in that future. Pray for this generation of young Roma men and women like Daniel, who are poised to make a lasting difference for the Roma of Slovakia!
Thanksgiving and Prayer Requests:
- Join us in thanking God for young students like Daniel, and for the teachers who are willing to invest time and energy into their future!
- Join us in praying for Daniel and his classmates. Pray also for the teachers and administrators of this and other Roma schools in Slovakia, that face constant pressure from local and national governments that seek to hinder or shut down these schools.
