About this Mission Project
The state of Assam is nestled in northeast India, and is the “Tea Garden” area. The level of education for day laborers is very poor and the economic condition of the people is pathetic.
The Assam Baptist Convention wants to assist their young people by sending 1 young man and 2 young women to nursing school 300 miles east in the capital city of Guwahati. The 3 ½ year program will give them a diploma in General Nursing and Midwifery.
The total cost for 3 ½ years of nursing school is 210,000 rupees – a fortune for tea laborers. But in US dollars, that’s only $5,250 and includes their housing and tuition for the entire 3 ½ year program. The cost to send 3 students will be $15,750. Families of the students will pay for their meals.
- $125 would pay 1 month’s tuition.
- $500 pays for 4 months of nursing school.
- $1500 pays for a year for one student.
Mission Project Specifics
This project seeks to raise $15,750 to provide 3 deserving students with a nursing education. This project will be managed by the General Secretary of the Assam Baptist Convention – R. K. RayChawdhuri.
