Review for India Gospel League, Inc. North America, Hudson, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

IGL is stand-out in the work that it does for women in South India, the way they use investments to transform communities at a grassroots level is encouraging and it is all done with Christian love. Women we met were empowered to start their own businesses or trained for gainful employment. The women I met were proud of their work and thankful for being released from poverty-reinforcing loan-sharks. IGL are also transformative in improving literacy so that future generations will not be left behind and trapped in the poverty cycle. Their commitment to womens transformation groups for 5 years is very positive as it isn't just a once-off investment, but it is long-term and sees through a community to see what needs to be done and how those needs change over time. A worthwhile investment!
