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 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.
I have been involved with India Partners for approximately 6 years. Initially my passion was directed towards orphans served and the disabled polio victims. I visited several of the partners when I went to India with one of the mission teams. I became very impressed with the passion and professional being of those individuals actually on the ground in the locations India Partners assists. In my opinion those India Partners serve in India are very appreciative of the help we are able to lend. I love helping them gain a potentially better life and showing them the love of Christ.
