WHO WE ARE
"Reaching out to help the homeless and the loveless in their plight"
In 2002 two of us visited India, discussed with our friends there the need for primary education for the rag-pickers in a poor slum area, and agreed to do something about it on the flight home. Later that year the school opened with 117 children getting basic education for the first time.
In India our local partners do all the hard work, taking in orphans, housing discarded women, loving the unloved, the lost and the lonely. We provide some money, some prayer support, a bit of practical advice, and a commitment to enduring support.
We look for opportunities to help the poorest of the poor:– in a one room house where the broken sewing machine and drunken husband birthed our micro-finance project, on the rubbish tip by Agape School where many have cried, and then turned to righteous anger and determination to provide food for body, mind and spirit for the outcasts.
The Bible is crystal clear in saying that our job is:
“to act justly, and to love mercy and walk humbly with your God”
“to look after widows and orphans in their distress”
We have no time for hollow religion. We’ll make a few mistakes along the way but:-
We don’t just talk about the gospel. We live the good news.
