In a country like India, where extreme poverty is pervasive, education is a lifeline. It unlocks the door of opportunity and engenders hope, especially in those who come from materially poor families.
Educating the next generation is one of our passions. In order to affect lasting change in the lives of children and their families, we’re committed to providing a top-notch, Christian education to as many students as possible, which is one of the reasons why building a new school has risen to the top of our to-do list.
In the developing world, or anywhere else for that matter, a dynamic educational environment is an on-ramp that connects students to outcomes that would have been unimaginable were it not for the opportunity to learn.
Remember Kumari’s story? Prior to arriving at our children’s home in 2000, her prospects for a better life were dim. Now she’s a college graduate sending out resumes to potential employers.
And you may recall reading about Srinu. Once a vulnerable, young boy walking through the doors of our children’s home for the first time, Srinu’s now just a couple of years from getting a white coat with the intitials “M.D.” embroidered on it. “Srinu, M.D.” — that sounds pretty good.
Help us transform the lives of India’s poorest children. Help us bring Master’s Village to life.
But stories like Srinu’s and Kumari’s aren’t the exception. As remarkable as their personal journeys have been, there are so many others who have passed through the doors of our school or our children’s home, or both, and are currently in the process of chasing their dreams.
Your prayers and financial support make that possible.
Kids like Lavanya, Prasad, and Padma (pictured above) — each of whom knows what it means to be poor — are given an opportunity to go to school, earn a college degree, find gainful employment, and in a single generation, end the cycle of poverty they were born into. And all of this happens in an environment in which Jesus is worshiped and adored.
Again, your prayers and financial support make that possible.
In order for us to be able to walk with a child as if she were our own, and provide her with the same opportunities we’d want our own son or daughter to have, it takes a lot more than good intentions. It takes a whole community of people who are committed to making a difference. Because for every Kumari, Srinu, Lavanya, Prasad, and Padma we care for, there are thousands more who need our help.
Since 1992, Vision Nationals has been planting churches, training nationals, and caring for orphans and widows in India. Through your prayers and financial gifts God has graciously sustained our work.
