GNI is the only organization that I am aware of that does 24/7 care for children and funds their education through college. My experience on the GNI trip far exceeded my high expectations! The trip was well-organized and covered a wide range of backgrounds. I appreciate that when someone sponsors a child with GNI, 100% of the money goes to that child. It is financially sound and a great investment into the lives of these kids who would otherwise have no future or hope. I recommend checking out their website and seeing for yourself the difference that you can make in the life of a child.
I had the pleasure of going to India with Dr. Faiz Rahman 5 years ago and saw first hand what this incredible organization does for destitute, "untouchable" children in GNI's Dream Centers (orphanages). There are thousands of lives being affected by GNI and what I find exceeds any other organization I've come across is that higher education is available for these children who otherwise would never dream of going to college, which will not only impact the lives of the individuals under GNI's wing but will elevate India as a whole. I am happy to support Good News India because I know that every dollar I donate is going straight where it is needed most. Just an amazing organization.
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 was fortunate to have the chance to travel with Good News India and visit 8 of the Dream Centers. Among the general conditions found in India, I was so impressed with the happy faces and genuine joy with the kids at the Dream Centers. They are loved, cared for, taught disciplines, and very obviously assisted with their education by being encouraged to study. I also felt like they were given good encouraement as individuals, and had positive self esteem. I met and now sponsor 3 wonderful kids with GNI. If I could afford to, I would do more. Its very obvious to me the funds are used wisely and the children are safe and well cared for.
Good News India is amazing. I got the opportunity to go to visit some of the Dream Centers they have for the kids to meet and serve the hundreds of kids in the centers. Seeing the joy of these kids that came from nothing and because of GNI now are receiving an education, good food, clothing and most importantly, finding out about the love of Jesus was incredible. You can tell that these kids are the heart of what GNI does and everything they get goes to them. Definitely a ministry to support!!!
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!
