The AKSZA Mission to Street Children exists to bring about transformation in individual children, as well as families and communities, through its service to those who are poor, needy, orphaned, socially excluded or live on the street.
Currently, the mission serves around 30 children either through its residential or day-care programmes. AKSZA's dedicated staff team cares for a multi-ethnic group of children from three main cultures: Roma (Gypsy), Romanian and Hungarian. The primary goal at AKZSA is to show the love of Christ and to encourage the young people and children to follow Him.
The AKSZA Mission was born out of a God-given vision at a Women's Association conference in 1998. The work of the mission began in 2001 and, since then, the staff and volunteers have cared for up to 60 children.
Ilona Veres previously worked as a member staff at Aksza for eight years. Presently she works in the Reformed Church's Diakonia work in the village of Mera, however is still involved in the lives of the children at Aksza through the Caleb House project.
