Training Leaders for Holistic Child Development

This project seeks to raise $18,632.25 to train 25 to 30 leaders for holistic child development ministry.

Goal: $18,632.25

About This Mission Project

The Eastern Theological College, located in Jorhat, Assam, India, has taken up the challenge of training leaders to work toward holistic development among tribal children. This initiative is significant considering that tribal children comprise the most neglected group in a region that is characterized by poverty, illiteracy, violence and conflicts in which children often suffer the most.

Children need to be given the right opportunities to grow and thrive. They need to be nurtured in all aspects of life. That is the goal of this project.

The year-long training program will include one month of an intensive on-campus course as well as seminars, field research and project-writing.
