Risi Riciklimi Recycling Plant
After processing more than 500,000 pounds of plastic bottles and other containers, Risi Riciklimi is moving into a new phase. You can help.
Kosovo suffers an average unemployment rate of forty percent. As a way to create jobs, CAMA partnered with a local Kosovar believer Fatos to open a small recycling plant in 2012. Today Risi Riciklimi (Innovations in Recycling) is the only locally-owned Christian business in the city of Gjilan.
Fatos, now the sole owner, manages a multi-ethnic team of six full-time staff. His vision is to see the community connect more deeply:
- With God, Risi Riciklimi desires to see others connected to God through the hearing, seeing, and reading of His Word.
- With Others, Risi Riciklimi strives to help collectors grow in their understanding of biblically-based business practices and learn what it means to walk before God with integrity and honesty.
- With The Environment, Risi Riciklimi wants to see a cleaner Kosovo and help others know about the benefits recycling can bring.
Now after processing more than 500,000 pounds of plastic bottles and other containers, Risi Riciklimi is entering phase two. You can help.
Fatos was recently awarded a grant to purchase a new recycling machine to grind plastic into small flakes. The new machine will go a long way in keeping Risi Riciklimi operational. Your donations to this project will help upgrade the existing electrical services to handle a 50KW machine, provide operating capital for six months, and allow Fatos to continue to serve Jesus as a bi-vocational pastor.
