A friend told me about his neighbor that was elderly and very sick. She needed to reach the doctor but could not move and refused to call for emergency help. So we linked our arms and carried her to the car. We ended up taking her to two doctors and a clinic. Since we were in her home we saw that she needed food and clothing. So the next day we came back with some cooked food and extra groceries. We spent time and straightened her house a bit, she was poor so did not have much. We sat and talked with her, she reached out and held my hand and said I saved her life. I laughed, “no but you sure have brought a lot of happiness to me, seeing the smile on your face and the melody of your voice after the doctor did his wonder.”
I learned that it is the poorest of the poor that suffer the greatest as they fall through the normal systems. Unless we look out for those that have no immediate family and those that are in extreme poverty they will suffer greatly. I support India Partners, http://indiapartners.org/, because they work to transform the communities they work with. Not just giving a handout, but developing the community so that the people will no longer suffer, and teaching as they go, so that the people they help will not always be looking for another handout but seeking to see how they can help others.
I think of giving to India Partners as a leveraged investment in happiness. I know that not only will I improve the lives of others but I will far happier as a result. My giving is a double blessing.
Review from #MyGivingStory
As a computer engineer, I was moved by the husband/wife engineering team running the Agape computer training school for the disabled. When they started their home became a hostel for students that lived too far away to commute. They could clearly be living a much higher quality of life but have chosen to dedicate themselves to giving hope and a transformed life to the disabled of India. I traveled their a few years ago, and a once in a lifetime experience and was later asked to join the board.
I have been blessed to be able to travel to India a couple of times with India Partners. I have seen first hand the amazing work they have done and continue to do. It is difficult to describe in one small paragraph the many ways India Partners is serving thousands of people in India. What an amazing organization.
Because IP supports so many organizations we can choose where our monies go. I especially LOVE Agape School where hubby and I volunteered in 2008. With my own daughter having a physical disability my heart is especially drawn to helping others with disabilities. IP has incredible integrity, great employees and awesome volunteers. We trust them completely in using our donations to do God's work in getting the gospel message out and serving people with love.
Absolutely amazing organization and can not wait to work with them again.
I love India Partners because it is based on vision, call and compassion. It is the God’s chosen organization that brings Salvation to the soul and hope to live. It stood for me and encouraged me to live for others.
2. India Partners is a wonderful organization because it is seeking poor and weaker section of the society to make partnership and to bring them up in life and bring light and hope in them. It strives to bring hope, justice and compassion to the people of India to become rich. India partners works alongside broad group of indigenous Christian grass roots agencies in India focused on alleviate poverty and injustice.
3. My experience with India Partners has been great and marvelous it is started with one man’s obedience and sacrificial life for the work of the Lord to bring light to the people in darkness, hope in the life of hopeless and to bring voice in the voiceless people. My life and the Orphans Faith Home ministry is great example. The meaning of India partners shows that God has a special plan to partnering between rich and the poor, educated and uneducated, white and the black to show to the world that God cares all. The founder and the present CEO of India Partners Brent Hample is the one who was chosen by God like a prophet to bring liberty and justice to the outcaste and Dalit people of India. Through his sacrificed life hundreds of Orphan children and thousands of poor people received spiritually and material help and became self sufficiency people. India Partners (Brent Hample) became God father and comforted fatherless and motherless children and turned tears into joy.

To my experience India partners is the number one Non-Profit Voluntary Organization that is working in India. In future I believe that India partner organization will grow one and only the top nonprofit organization and will have more dedicated and generous people will come to support such a great nonprofit organization in India. I love India partners and I Love my country.
I worked first as a volunteer with India Partners and recently have been privileged to be nominated to sit on their board of directors. I have a deep personal passion for the people of India and cannot thank India Partners enough for what they do. Their work with the indigenous grassroots agencies in the country is amazing. Currently India Partners supports several groups that support the people of India in a variety of capacities including human trafficking, orphanage, educational programs, disaster relief, AIDS education and more. India Partners ability to live missionally both through the way they run their fiscal business and the way the staff executes their vision is inspiring.
India Partners is a fantastic organization which works with Indigenous organizations and communities throughout this great nation to see the poorest of the poor have a chance. It's amazing to see India Partners mobilize people and resources to the heart of social and developmental challenges. Way to go guys!
Appreciate that India Partners works with the partner agencies to help them develop and build financially strong organizations so they can continue to serve the needs of their clients.
Sahaara has been involved with India Partners for the past four years. They have helped us in funding our project among trafficked women and children in red light areas in Mumbai. They also conduct training for our staff members twice in a year on various aspects of counselling. We are really happy to be partnering with India Partners to help many women trapped in prostitution and children of women in prostitution to be released to a life of joy and freedom!
