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 am Elam Bag a student of GNI belongs to a destitute family. My father is an asthma patient and mother works in paddy field, and earning about $ 10 in a month. We don't have proper shelter to live, our house is made up mud and till, and during the rainy season we suffer very much because the rain water dropped into the house. I was not getting sufficient food and clothe. When I was a little boy I came to the Kalahandi dream Centre by the help of our director Pastor Arun Ku Nag. I am staying and studying in GNI from last 10 years. The GNI has lift up me from mud and helped me to build up my career. In kalahandi dream Centre I got very good food, clothes, shelter and the best education which I never had expected, I might not able to study in our home already I have decided not to go school but here now I am doing MSW (Master in Social Work) and another more one year is left to finish my course. Another main thing that I have achieved that is spirituality, here I learnt about Jesus Christ and I strongly I believe that he is my personal savior. I will never go away from Jesus Christ. I thank to GNI and the Lord Jesus for all these blessing.
