Goal: $3,080 to train 60 kids

About this Mission Project

The REACH Mission strives to support children by providing education and skills training to orphans and children who are physically handicapped so they may be able to support themselves. REACH is a ministry of the Centenary Baptist Church in Hanamkonda, South India.

This project seeks to provide training to 60 youths in Microsoft Office, Adobe Photoshop and DTP, as well as in skills such as sewing and embroidery. This will help them be able to compete with others in the marketplace.

Funds will be used to purchase computers, sewing machines, stools and chairs, in addition to providing a stipend for the training instructors.

A gift of $100 will pay the stipend of one instructor for a month. $250 will help pay the stipends of computer and sewing instructors for two months as well as covering maintenance charges for the equipment.
