There is approximately 8,5 million orphans in India. They are without a home and parents for multiple different reasons. For some it’s because their parents died. Some have been abandoned because their parents simply couldn’t afford to feed them because of the extremely poor living conditions.
The work with the orphans began in 1994 when Jacob gave a home for three orphans. In the spring of 2016 there was already about forty orphanages that give shelter to 4500 children. Many of these children have began their own life, started a family and participate in working life. Some have left to spread the message of Jesus to the yet unreachable reservations after studying first at the bibleschool. There’s also been build other learning institutions near the orphanages than just schools, for example colleges and nursing-schools. There’s also a plan to build a technical school for boys according to how resources go.
By becoming a godparent for an orphan you can accomplish so much with such a small sacrifice, - you can change one person’s whole world.
In the godparent acticity you participate in an important work:
AS A GODPARENT YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE
The orphans live on the streets dirty and sick, being despised by everyone.They beg and steal food or look for something to eat from the dumps and bins. As a godparent you make your god child’s chances in the future better and also help their community. As a godparent you give care-taking, a home, food, clothing and better hygiene.
Our goal is to give the most under privileged some hope of a future by starting Hope Centers as the bases of aidwork in slum areas. That includes a building with a hangout, a kitchen and the aid worker’s simple living space. An important part of the activity is the well, where the whole neighborhood gets clean water. If given the chance, a lavatory will be build as well.
There is a need for clean water in the countrysides of India. Travelling long distances to get water from rivers or ponds is not only extremely tough, but many people get sick or die because of the polluted water as well. We are also connected to the building projects of bores in the proximity of Hope Centers.
Our activity pursues to give the widows in a tough position a chance to make an in-coming for themselves as well as for their children. They’ll be given sewing courses and be donated sewing machines to. At the same time they’ll get to hear the message of Jesus and the new life He has given. They get to free themselves from the burden of paganism and receive a new life in Jesus.
In the distant reservations the evangelists have to travel dozens even hundreds of kilometers. One evangelist’s working area can include multiple villages. They travel mainly by foot. The work is slow and exhausting. It is a huge improvement when an evangelist can be given a motorcycle or a bike.
