I spent over a week in India visiting the Good News India Dream Centers and meeting with the kids. It was the most wonderful, loving, beautiful time of my life. The children are so well taken care of and so thankful for Good News India. The organization is run wonderfully. The children are fed, loved, and educated (through college or Bible school). Good News India is rapidly changing lives.

Good News India is one of the few organizations that helps kids through college. Dr. Rahman, director and founder, is passionate about education. His kids are excelling in school and life skills. My son and husband have visited the Dream Centers throughout India. It has been a life-changing experience to see the GNI kids and interact with these joyful children.

Good News India is one of the few nonprofits where the majority of the donations go directly to those in need, rather than administration. I have known Dr. Rahman and his family for many years. They are people of integrity and dedicate their lives to helping others. My son and husband have been to the GNI centers in India several times over the past 10 years. My office manager in our company has been there, too. Their firsthand accounts of the amazing children, lepers, and remote villages are riveting. I give to few charities, but GNI is one that I trust and respect.

I've been to India with Dr. Rahman several times. As a homeschool teen, it changed my life. It was an opportunity to see the world and more importantly, impact my perspective. I realize how blessed I am. I appreciate the privileges and blessings of my life. GNI is reaching thousands of people with hope and a life-changing message. I have great respect for Dr. Rahman and his team of miracle workers. Zach Burns, Phoenix, Arizona

We have sponsored three children for many years. In May 2012 we went to India with Dr. Rahman to do some work in 10 of the Dream Centers and to meet our kids. Most noteworthy is that all of the kids everywhere are clean, well-fed, attentive, and happy. If you go to say, Haiti, your heart breaks and you want to bring every kid back home with you. Good News India is different. You fall in love with the kids, but you soon see they don't need to be "rescued" — GNI has already done that for them. They have 24/7 supervision, food, love and care. My most important job is to simply keep supporting them through prayer and financially.

Good News India is an incredible organization that rescues kids from a life of human trafficking. I had the honor of going on a GNI tour last month and it changed my life. It is incredible to see firsthand the kids at the Dream Centers receiving food, shelter, clothing and having other basic needs met. Many of the children are orphans, but those whose parents are still living are too destitute to provide for their children. We heard several of the kids' testimonies and life stories, telling us about their terrible living conditions before they came to a Dream Center. I am so thankful for Good News India and for the work they are doing to disciple and train young people to be followers of Christ in the world. These kids are under 24/7/365 care, not just for a few hours a day, which makes GNI so unique. It was very special to be able to step into a day in their lives while I was there. I highly recommend supporting this organization - every penny goes directly to the children! A huge need is for children to be sponsored, so please go to http://goodnewsindia.org and sponsor a child for $30/month. It is worth every penny. These "throw-away" kids are seen as VALUABLE at Good News India. I can't wait to see how the influence of this organization grows in the years to come.

This organization is amazing! The trip to India was well planned, very insightful, and a great opportunity to witness God in action. I was blown away by these children that others had thrown away. Beautiful, talented, thankful, prayerful children. Thankful for every thing others take for granted like food, clothing and the chance to go to school. They are willing to do whatever it takes to share the gospel and will not compromise their faith. I came home and immediately started saving for my next trip. My husband and I have added three children to our family and hope to add many more.

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.

What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

Hiring and Italian cook lol The food was great for the first 3 or 4 weeks, but i did start missing pizza and pasta.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

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

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

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!
