FIZZ - GB's international project

The FIZZ project's aim is to bring together teams of women as gurgling springs in dry places – restoring hope for life.

One of the outworkings of this is the FIZZ mission team trips to Kosova and, last summer, 33 women from GB England & Wales served out there. In 2012, around 30 young women and leaders from GB Europe will be on such mission team trips.

Situated in the Balkan region of Europe, Kosova was part of a horrific ethnic conflict in 1999 which caused the deaths of around 11,000 people and left many families emotionally and financially devastated.

GB’s summer mission teams help restore hope for life by organising holiday Bible clubs for local children, distributing aid to widows, participating in mission events with churches and assisting with the running of the three GB companies in Kosova.

The FIZZ project, run by GB Europe, has been chosen as the GB International focus until 2014 – both prayerfully and financially - helping to fund projects, like the work in Kosova, and develop the mission team idea.

A Gifts With a Difference leaflet has been produced explaining more about the initiative and how it can be supported - for example:

  • £3 will enable GB to buy a special gift for a Kosova child, such as ball/skipping rope (Code: FIZZ101)
  • £7 will enable GB to purchase an Albanian kids’ Bible (Code: FIZZ102)
  • £10 will cover the transport costs for a GB leader in Kosova to attend training (Code: FIZZ103)
  • £15 will provide a craft kit so the children to be creative at GB and the holiday Bible clubs (Code: FIZZ104)
  • £20 will enable GB to provide a Kosovan widow with a kit of essential food items (Code: FIZZ105)
  • £25 will allow one FIZZ team member to participate in a discipleship training course and be part of an online support network (Code: FIZZ106).

Download the leaflet below and find out how you can donate/fundraise for this cause.

You can also download an updated leaflet explaining more about phase two of the FIZZ initiative. New aims include training and sending more young women out to Kosova and exploring the needs of church leaders in the Balkans.
