Risi Riciklimi – Recycling Project

A recycling business that connects people with Jesus - the ultimate Recycler of lives


Watch a video below.

In 2012, the CAMA Kosovo team sought God’s leading on future business development in Kosovo, a country with a 45–50 percent unemployment rate. The Lord opened team leader Ron Ramsey’s eyes to see the garbage and plastics littering Kosovo’s highways, rivers, and streams. Ron and a local believer, Fatos, saw the waste as “money lying around, waiting to be picked up and used to help better the lives of those in the community.” So, they founded Risi Riciklimi (Innovations in Recycling) to help Kosovo’s poor by providing sustainable employment opportunities at a biblically based business and to teach God-honoring environmental stewardship.

Risi Riciklimi has set a goal of raising $50,000 this year. Added to local grants and money saved from business profits, this will allow them to purchase additional equipment and provide work to more people. We invite you to become a part of this team and support Risi Riciklimi in telling Kosovars about Jesus, the ultimate Recycler of lives.

CAMA began work in Kosovo in 1999 by providing post-war relief. Today, CAMA and the Alliance family continue to serve Kosovars in faith for “the formation of a Jesus-loving community of hope, reconciliation, respect, and purpose that changes the nation of Kosovo.”
