The Republic of Macedonia (FYROM)
The Republic of Macedonia (FYROM), like Albania, is a country comparatively smaller in an area and with fewer people than any other of the Balkan nations. It borders Northern Greece and so it is a day’s drive from The Outreach European Headquarters. Its close proximity has opened the opportunity for many close communications between their Christian leaders and ours.
College Education for Outstanding Students
Since September 2003, The Outreach has awarded scholarships to outstanding students in Bulgaria who graduated from its secondary schools. Currently, four such students are so honored and supported at the Bible University and one at the law school in Sofia.
Four Albanian students have been supported at the Greek Bible Institute near Athens, Greece. The first student graduated in June 2003.
Currently, two students are at American universities and a Macedonian woman at Anatolia College in Thessaloniki, Greece.
