The largest juvenile prison in Romania is The Educational Center located in Buzias, 20 miles east of Timisoara. Annually MLI works with an average of 170 boys and girls, ages 14 to 23, who committed various crimes, often related to poverty, lack of parental supervision and at times, coercion by adults to participate in illegal activities, and for which the court ordered the educational measure of internment in a re-education center.

MLI has been invited to provide a moral/Christian  based educational program in an effort to create an alternative route for these young offenders. Through the use of Christian music and Bible instruction, the transformational love of Christ has brought change and the hope of a new beginning for many youth upon their release from the Center. Since its inception, the program has registered a positive impact in lowering the recidivism rate and has gained the appreciation of the Center officials for its effectiveness.
