FAI RELIEF IN
Education remains an important part in addressing the larger issue of poverty and the reason is simple: when any child fails to acquire the basic skills needed to function as a productive, responsible member of society, society as a whole—not to mention the individual child—loses. The cost of educating children is far outweighed by the cost of not educating them.
AN EFFECTIVE MEANS TO MANY ENDS
Through poverty-stricken regions covering large areas across South Asia, education is an effective means to many ends: it reduces poverty, raises wages, promotes peace, improves health, and protects girls and women.
WHAT MATTERS MOST
Ultimately, education serves entire family units. Our education centers have become community staples, with a presence beyond center walls and class hours, forging deep relational bonds and influential legitimacy allowing for a witness of the eternal Truth all men, women, and children deserve the dignity of hearing in their own language.
THE HEART OF SOUTH ASIA
Situated in the heart of South Asia, India is home to featuring 2,289 unengaged people groups and 1.3 billion people—1.2 billion of whom are still categorically unreached. Stretching from the Himalayas to the Arabian Sea, Indians comprise both the world’s largest Hindu population and third-highest Muslim population in the world.
India’s massive population, entrenched caste system, ethno-linguistic barriers, and increasingly isolationist governance make reaching Indians a colossal challenge.
