Evangelism Through Farming in India

This project seeks to raise $11,000 to help 50 families start their own farms.

Goal: $11,000

About this Mission Project

In India, the gap between rich and poor is widening every day. A tragic result of this situation is an increase in suicide rates among poor laborers and farmers. However, traditional missionaries are strongly opposed when they try to bring the love and hope of the gospel to Hindu and Muslim cultures in Northeast India.

The Council of Baptist Church of Northeast India (CBCNEI) has begun a program for Community Development Workers (CDW), where students learn basic concepts of holistic development through farming. As CDWs, these evangelists are more accepted, and being farmers gives their testimony credibility.

This project will benefit 50 families each year and lift up entire villages as they improve their farming skills and gain new dignity.

$275 will enable one family to have a small farm.
$550 will help three families to each have a farm.

Mission Project Specifics

This project seeks to raise $10,000 to help 50 families start their own farms. Every year, these 50 families and their communities will benefit through this project as their income is distributed throughout the local economy.

This project will be managed by the Reverend Dr. Jolly Rimai of the mission department for CBCNEI.

It is anticipated that this project will improve the overall economy of many communities in Northeast India.
