I have worked with many organizations offering the same type of assistance as Good News India and I find this organization to be exceptional in its devotion to these less fortunate ones. They provide comprehensive life care including completion of a college education for its student benefactors. This has a profound preventive impact in the area of human trafficking as well as a future impact for the socioeconomic development of each individual being helped by this organization. My professional meetings with Dr. Rahman have always exceeded my expectations in professionalism and personal selflessness in his dedication to those who are hopelessly trapped in poverty. I would highly recommend Good News India as an effective and transformative NGO for your donations.

My husband and I have been donating to GNI for several years now. We love hearing the latest happenings in their newsletter and seeing such positive results among the children. Dr. Rahman is an absolute gem with such a passion for India's kids. I would highly recommend Good News India!

I am Elam Bag a student of GNI belongs to a destitute family. My father is an asthma patient and mother works in paddy field, and earning about $ 10 in a month. We don't have proper shelter to live, our house is made up mud and till, and during the rainy season we suffer very much because the rain water dropped into the house. I was not getting sufficient food and clothe. When I was a little boy I came to the Kalahandi dream Centre by the help of our director Pastor Arun Ku Nag. I am staying and studying in GNI from last 10 years. The GNI has lift up me from mud and helped me to build up my career. In kalahandi dream Centre I got very good food, clothes, shelter and the best education which I never had expected, I might not able to study in our home already I have decided not to go school but here now I am doing MSW (Master in Social Work) and another more one year is left to finish my course. Another main thing that I have achieved that is spirituality, here I learnt about Jesus Christ and I strongly I believe that he is my personal savior. I will never go away from Jesus Christ. I thank to GNI and the Lord Jesus for all these blessing.

I spent two months with Good News India, from August to October. My first week and a half was spent with Dr. Rahman and Janette, another American. We hoped between Dream Centers, seeing about 10 of them. Every center put on a show for us with dancing and testimonies and afterward they had cooked us a large meal. After our meal, we would play with the children til it was time to go. The rest of my trip was spent between two centers. One is the mountain, which was beautiful and the other in the jungle. All the kids was great. I would teach in the mornings and also for a couple hours at night. but when i was not teaching, i was play games with the kids. They all love soccer. It was a life-changing experience that i hope to be repeating this fall.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I grew as a teacher and as a person from this experience. Also, I am much less wasteful with my money... Seeing and hearing about the lives those kids have lived has really made me think about where my money is going and how it could be used instead to help other less fortunate and bring glory and honor to Jesus.

My experience had a huge impact on me and I still talk with some of the people I meet in India.

I have been volunteering with Good News India since October 2011. I love working with GNI because of their passion to help the destitute children of India. I have heard testimonies from some of the children that before GNI they didn't have shoes on their feet or soap to wash with. Or they had to work to help support their family when they were quite young. These kids are so happy to be in school because many of them didn't have a chance to study before. Many of these kids would have ended up in bonded slavery or worse - the sex trade. Another thing I love about GNI is that they give all glory to God for the things that have been accomplished. God's hand is surely on this ministry!
