Featured This Week - Brookwood India Project Update

STARTING CHURCHES - RESCUING CHILDREN - MAKING DISCIPLES - TRAINING LEADERSHIP

Brookwood has partnered with Pastor Praveen since 2011 to rescue thousands of children from slavery, and care for hundreds more abandoned children. See how God is using your generosity to support this mission.


LEADERSHIP: Praveen leads the Sylom Pastors League of 2,012 pastors in Andhra Pradesh, India. Praveen leads pastors who reach out to villages where there is no church.

The people of these villages are called Dalits and have been taught they are impure, worthless, “untouchable” and treated as outcasts. The gospel of Christ teaches them that they are of infinite value, accepted, and touchable.

 

RESCUED CHILDREN: Brookwood is partnering with Set Free Alliance to provide funds to help care for 1,279 rescued children. This includes spiritual nurture, housing, food, clothing, medical care, education and vocational training. Approximately 800 of the children live in 7 leased houses and 500 live in 23 church buildings.
 

SUCCESS STORY: 50 older girls and 30 older boys have graduated from the program and now have jobs. The girls learned to sew in vocational training and the boys learned wood working. These graduates are giving nearly $4,000.00 a month back to the ministry to help care for the children.
 


FINANCIAL SUPPORT: $80,000.00 is needed monthly to meet the basic necessities of the nearly 1,300 children. The Brookwood Ministry Plan supplies $30,000, Set Free Alliance sends $35,000, and approximately $10,000 comes from other sources. There is a great need for additional funds.



 

THE CAMPUS: The Brookwood Ministry Plan includes funds to build a campus to house 800 children and staff on six acres purchased in 2013. Brookwood is developing plans with a trusted Christian contractor in India to begin Phase 1 of construction this year. The campus will dramatically increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the ministry.
