There is more to any nonprofit than meets the eye. Annual reports offer overviews and statistics. Meetings and presentations provide a glimpse of the work being done, its value to humankind, and a vision for the future. But to really know the heart of an organization, you need to know the people involved. I have gotten to know some of the folks in the home office. This is not work to them, it is a calling. The brilliant things they do include involving indigenous leaders to reach the people they serve, communicating the Gospel through children's Bible clubs and adult literacy classes, and church-planting with ministry partners in India. They do all of this while developing new ways to inform their donors and the public at large via social media, email, videos and ground-breaking opportunities to catch the excitement of changed lives. Mission India (http://www.missionindia.org/) has roots extending back to 1970, and was organized at Bibles for India in 1980, then became Mission India in 1990. They are launching a new effort to assist parents and children in the West in learning more about their work and give them the opportunity to make a difference in lives in India -- it's their exciting "Lost in India" program with a free "Adventure Kit" to make families better informed and invite them to join in. I believe that any donation given to Mission India will be used most carefully and wisely to further the kingdom of Christ and spread the Gospel in India. Don't hesitate to get involved with them.
