Growing up in a poor Gypsy village in the Ukraine, Kristina knew she would need a good job to break out of poverty. She had always dreamed of becoming a hairdresser but had no tools or anyone to teach her. Discover how God opened doors to make ... Read Transcript


Terry: IN MANY

CULTURES, GYPSIES ARE

CONSIDERED SOCIAL OUTCASTS,

SO IT IS HARD FOR THEM TO

FIND WORK OUTSIDE THEIR

CAMPS.

THAT'S WHY CBN IS HELPING

GYPSY FAMILIES IN UKRAINE

START BUSINESSES OF THEIR

OWN.

Reporter: FOR

GENERATIONS GYPSY FAMILIES

IN UKRAINE HAVE LIVED IN A

CYCLE OF POVERTY.

CHRISTINA'S LIFE HAS BEEN

FILLED WITH NEED AND

HUNGER.

EVERYTHING IS SO HARD

HERE.

WHEN I GET OLDER AND HAVE

CHILDREN, I REALLY WANT MORE

FOR THEM.

I DON'T WANT THEM TO

EXPERIENCE WHAT I WENT

THROUGH.

Reporter: SO SHE WORKS

HARD IN SCHOOL AND WANTS TO

GET A GOOD JOB ONE DAY.

I REALIZED IN THE SIXTH

GRADE WHAT I WANTED TO

BECOME.

A HAIRDRESSER, WHEN I GROW

UP.

I ASKED MY PARENTS TO PAY

FOR MY HAIR DRESSING

COURSES, BUT THEY SAID WE

DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH MONEY FOR

FOOD, LET ALONE EXTRA

CLASSES.

Terry: CHRISTINA GOES

TO CLASSES SUPPORTED BY

CBN.

AND SHE IS NOW ON IN ONE OF

THE WORSHIP GROUPS.

I KEEP ASKING GOD TO HELP

MAKE MY DREAMS COME TRUE.

Terry: AT ONE OF OUR

SUMMER CAMPS, CHRISTINA MET

A VOLUNTEER WHO WAS TEACHING

PEOPLE TO CUT HAIR.

SHE REALIZED CHRISTINA HAS A

NATURAL TALENT FOR THIS KIND

OF WORK.

THOUSANDS OF FAMILIES LIVE

IN CAMPS LIKE THIS.

IT IS VERY DIFFICULT FOR

THEM TO FIND WORK OUTSIDE

THE CAMP.

THAT'S WHY WE'RE HELPING

CHRISTINA TO LEARN JOB

SKILLS SHE CAN USE RIGHT

HERE, IN HER OWN COMMUNITY.

WE KNEW CHRISTINA COULD

SUCCEED ON HER OWN.

SO WE BOUGHT HER ALL OF THE

TOOLS SHE NEEDED TO START

HER OWN BUSINESS.

NOW SHE IS EARNING EXTRA

MONEY FOR HER FAMILY.

AND WE HELPED HER FAMILY

START FARMING POTATOES.

BECAUSE IF YOU AR OF

YOU, WE ARE NO LONGER

HUNGRY.

AND I DREAMED OF BEING A

HAIRDRESSER FOR A LONG TIME,

AND NOW IT IS A REALITY.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

HELPING US.
