Use your business skills to support the restoration of lives damaged by abuse and trafficking!  OM Greece supports the work of two non-profit companies seeking to provide employment and training opportunities for women as they readjust to ‘normal’ life.  One challenge is balancing the needs of a ministry to vulnerable people and the requirements of a business that should become sustainable and self supporting. People with knowledge and experience in business management and marketing are needed.
OM Greece, in partnership with various local churches and organisations, is involved in reaching out through mercy projects to the poor and needy. These projects offer not only free warm food, access to showers, laundry and clothing, but a chance for people to find welcome, a listening ear, and the message of hope that comes from and through Jesus Christ.  Come and serve as His hands and feet in Athens!
