Training Leaders for Holistic Child Development
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.
- $50 provides two books or a partial scholarship.
- $100 purchases books or office supplies.
- $250 provides a full student scholarship or a teacher’s honorarium.
- $500 buys a computer for the project.
Mission Project Specifics
This project seeks to raise $18,632.25 to train 25 to 30 leaders for holistic child development ministry.
This project will be managed by the Eastern Theological College in Jorhat. It is the only centrally sponsored theological council of the Council of Baptist Churches in North East India.
It is anticipated that this project will train and equip individuals to take up leadership in the church and society to promote and work for the cause of children in a holistic manner.
The year-long training program will include one month of an intensive on-campus course as well as seminars, field research and project-writing.
