Project Details

  • Project Description:

    Both in the mountain villages and in the major cities where they move for work and education, we will teach fetal development trainings along with sharing the Gospel and use that as a way to teach about the value that God places on life. In these cultures often life is not valued and we are seeking to provide skills development training, literacy training and health care classes as a way to help enrich the lives of the women and children and thus enriching the lives of the family. We will also help them to find ways to sell products they create and help develop long lasting businesses that will give them a strong sustainable foundation for their lives and livelihood.  Providing these types of trainings, classes and business opportunities, we will have a wonderful platform to speak into the lives of those who come and teach them about the one who created them, loves them, died for them and values them.

  • Cultural Information:

    This is a Hindu majority nation. We are targeting minority Tibetan Buddhist peoples. We try to distinguish ourselves from the garden variety trekker (grungy dread-locks and straggly beard) that comes to our country looking for enlightenment. Volunteer clothing and look should be modest and clean in order to differentiate ourselves and our message from them.

  • Geographic Information:

    Densely-populated, under-developed urban center. It is rustic, modern, filthy and fun. Modern shopping malls share the landscape with 15th century, decaying architecture. In the mountains, trails consist of steep, rugged, stair-step terrains that comb the nether regions of the world’s highest mountain range. Four to five days journey on foot, far away from civilization, ascending and descending thousands of feet to reach our people groups.
