Review for Mission India, Grand Rapids, MI, USA
Mission India is a Christian outreach that provides literacy training to women who are illiterate, in poverty, and have no way to improve their families lives. They teach throughout small villages in India where there is no other hope for them. The teachers are usually women who already went through the program and have had their own lives changed. They are dedicated, devoted, and really care about the other women and their families. Not only do they teach them how to read and write, which prevents them from being taken advantage of in the markets, but they teach them hygiene and how to save money and start their own micro businesses. The women who participate are truly changed - in fact their entire communities are transformed! I have been to India and sat in on two different sessions. One was in a small, dark, community room where 25 women were joyfully together learning. The other was out in the village common area by a huge old tree.
Mission India also does Children's Bible clubs and church planter training, and does all three of these programs with incredible efficiency, commitment and compassion. Only native Indian people are allowed to work in these programs and they are incredibly well trained.
I believe that Mission India gives as big a bang for your non-profit dollar as you will find anywhere!
