India

Our projects in India include education, income generation, health activities and vocational training.
Funded by Every Home for Christ/Every Home Global Concern supporters. A Community Development program based around primary school education, vocational training in sewing for women and a micro-enterprise program of helping poverty-stricken rickshaw pullers own their own rickshaw, is helping improve the lives of poor communities in Bangladesh and India, giving priority to girls and those of a low caste.

We are delighted to report that, as a result of this program in 2017:

  • 1200 boys and girls in 4 primary schools in Bangladesh and 200 children in India have received a basic education, school uniforms, daily lunches, access to clean water and toilets and new clothes at Christmas.
  • 274 village women have been trained in sewing and embroidery skills, enabling them to earn an income, often at a clothing factory.
  • 50 men and women saved enough money to provide half the cost of a sewing machine or rickshaw and we provided the balance. This has enabled the women to do tailoring from their home, increasing their family income and improving their lives.
  • Rickshaw pullers have been able to pay off their debts, pay back 50% of the rickshaw, leave the slums, provide an education for their children and start businesses.

Education in health and nutrition education has been provided for 1200 boys and girls and their families resulting in more hygienic practices and less sickness.

Resulting in –
• a 93% reduction in Malaria in the Malawi villages and a 56% reduction in the Zambia villages

Ethiopian Prison Ministry

This program focuses on 9 prisons in Ethiopia to help Ethiopian prisoners improve their lives while in prison and prepare them for life after imprisonment.
This includes education in health and sanitation, literacy, skills training, health and HIV/Aids education.

As a result we are delighted to report that in 2017 –
352 prisoners (men and women) were trained in brick-making, welding, tailoring, grinding and irrigation
One prison school was built to educate the children of prisoners as in Ethiopia, when a mother is sent to jail, her children come with her.
