Education brings hope to children in India

Jatapara Village, India

The Jatapara community is doing well. This month we had a small parent meeting. In this, they were told about the courses and that they should send their children to school and encourage them to not be absent from classes.

"Their children are the future towards a better society. Education helps us build opinions and have points of view on things in life. Some debate over the subject of whether education is the only thing that gives knowledge. Some say education is the process of gaining information about the surrounding world while knowledge is something very different. They are right."

Now people are encouraged and they know why children should regularly go to school. We hope in the coming days that they follow what they have learned and that instead of children working, they will be in school.

Making great strides even with little funding!

Farming for food AND income
Farming for food AND income

Farming

Agriculture constitutes the largest sector of our economy. The majority of the population, directly or indirectly, is dependent on this sector. We are uplifting the community by providing the farming project in the Sindh Province. We are also planning to start fish farming, as this will also provide resources for many people.

Since the farmers are working the project land, their lifestyle has changed. Their children are going to school and they are getting enough food for their families. Now, they also know the importance of health and are growing physically.

Nowadays, there is a lack of water and the irrigation system is closed. Farmers are waiting for water to complete the fish farm.

Sewing Centre

The sewing class is making a difference in the community. Many women are being trained in stitching skills and are able to increase the financial resources for their families. Many are encouraged and taking initiative to better live.

The group at the sewing centre are practicing stitching and learning to cut patterns. They have almost finished the course. The students are very excited and waiting for the day of graduation. We are also looking forward to new admissions for a new group.  

Computer Centre

The computer academy is equipping the youth for their better future. Many students have completed the computer course from this academy. Currently, we have nine students passionately learning and gaining the knowledge of computer technology.

The group of computer students also completes typing practice and is almost finished with the class. Soon, we will distribute the completion certificates to the students, and we are also getting new admissions for a new group.

Upcoming trip to area

Young girl in Iraq

Mike Parks and his team will venture into Iraq this fall to bring additional support to our team on the ground.  Much is being done to resolve permanence issues and help families to find ways of sustaining themselves.

Our hope is that families will be able to return home someday to rebuild and restore lives.  The team on the ground continues to help with temporary shelter, food resources, clean water and hygiene, as well as creating ideas for income generation amongst the refugees.

The teams on the ground spend much of their time restoring hope, building relationships with and amongst the refugees to avoid desperation.

Thank you for continuing your support to these displaced families.
