Working in Belgium since 1989, John and Pauline England established The European Evangelical Mission (TEEM). They helped plant four churches which continue to minister in the Belgium/Germany/Luxembourg border area. From there they started several ministries in Romania. Today TEEM supports Romanian village ministries like ReGen, The Horizon of Hope training centre, youth camps, training seminars and struggling pastors. TEEM also bought a property in Rucar for establishing a church.

Freeset is a fair trade business offering employment to women trapped in Kolkata’s sex trade. We make quality jute bags and organic cotton t-shirts, but their business is freedom! Freeset would like to see the 10,000 sex workers in their neighborhood empowered with the choice of leaving a profession they never chose in the first place.
