The Project Life Club Boca High began with a single student!
After spending five weeks on the mission field in the Roma villages of Croatia in 2013, Matt Lewis’ life was changed. His vision was to create awareness for students, teachers and his community for these hurting, forgotten children…but how?The first official act of the Boca High Project Life Club was to sponsor a Roma child. This small start provided a child with food, clothing, education, love and hope for the future. This was the beginning of their movement to “Catch the Vision – Change a Life: the heart cry of those who participate in the Club.
Next, eighteen students from Boca High School traveled to Croatia in the summer of 2014 to run a camp for Roma Gypsy Children. Each year more students join us, many return because their hearts and passion for the children continues to grow.
After working with these impoverished, forgotten children the students return to the US empowered to actually do something to make a difference, not just for this generation but for next and the next!
They aim to bring hope, help and opportunity for every child and to build a Life Learning Community Center to teach, tutor, counsel and help countless Gypsy children. The Learning Center Project is “Our Big Phat Awesome Gypsy Project” and is the focus of our efforts to bring lasting change.
