WHAT WE DO

India’s medium-term growth outlook is positive due to a young population and corresponding low dependency ratio, healthy savings and investment rates, and increasing integration into the global economy. India has many long-term challenges that it has not yet fully addressed, including widespread poverty, inadequate physical and social infrastructure, limited non-agricultural employment opportunities, scarce access to quality basic and higher education, and accommodating rural-to-urban migration.

COUNTRY COVID UPDATE

All over the world, countries have faced the global impact of COVID-19. But right now, the scale of loss in India from this pandemic is heartbreaking and unfathomable.

Over 370,000 daily new cases of COVID-19 were reported on April 28, 2021. It is likely that there are large numbers of unreported cases. The daily death rate is now over 3,000. Every 5 minutes, someone in India dies from COVID-19. With the alarming rate of infections, there is growing concern that COVID-19 in India will spill over into neighboring countries such as Bangladesh.

Our International Disaster Response team and our Ministry Team in Asia are working alongside local partners to provide much-needed hygiene kits to 15 vulnerable communities in rural northeastern India, as well as financial assistance to families to help meet their immediate needs. While meeting the needs of these households, World Renew will also be supporting a local healthcare facility serving a community of 5,000.

World Renew’s ability to scale up and meet this crisis is directly linked to the generosity of donors like you. Please help us bring the love of God directly to those who feel trapped and afraid during this health crisis. Your gift will save lives.

Partners In India

SFA is partner of World Renew that works in close connection with the Munda, Orissa in the eastern part of the country. Last year, 2,052 community members participated in programs with the following emphases:

  • Community Development ~ 16 village development councils met regularly and focused on eradicating poverty in their communities. World Renew and SFA are helping these development councils identify the greatest needs of their communities, and develop solutions for those problems.
  • Health ~ World Renew and SFA help communities examine their health needs and develop appropriate solutions. This includes various programs such as vaccination camps, general health education lessons, and a clinic for pregnant moms.
  • Income Generation ~ World Renew and SFA focus their income-generation programs in India specifically on the female population. Last year, 345 women sought training in the following areas: revolving loans, financial management, bookkeeping, and financial audits.
  • Literacy ~ World Renew and SFA help promote adult literacy by hosting 10 literacy classes across the region. Last year, 195 community members attended these weekly classes and improved their reading and writing skills.

Eficor – World Renew and Eficor have partnered for the past 12 years.  Most recently, they have completed a five year USAid and World Renew funded project with Eficor in Jharkand.

Current Projects with Eficor:

  • Peace Building Project: World Renew has a small one year project in Sahibganj, Jharkand to help in peace building between two tribal communities.  This project works on building bridges between the adolescents in the two tribal groups.
  • Embrace Aids Project with Shalom, Mizoram –  This is a one year innovative project funded by the World Renew Embrace Aids Innovation fund.  We are working with youth in changing risky behaviours.  Shalom, our partner works with the local churches through peer educators in helping adolescents in behaviour change.

World Renew is helping NEICORD carry out programs in urban Shillong and rural Patarkmah.

These programs include:

  • Health ~ In the Neicord health programs, communities receive services such as polio vaccination, and family planning clinics. As a result, community members have improved their health and are also becoming more willing to talk about certain taboo issues such as AIDS. Recently, a long-awaited weighing machine arrived. Women in the area have been happy to have their children weighed so that their growth and health can be monitored. They now feel empowered to act if their child isn’t growing appropriately.
  • Income Generation ~ This program is similar to that of Eficor as participants are encouraged to start savings groups and are trained in revolving loans, skills training, financial management training, book keeping training, and financial audits. In the past year, around 200 men and 200 women participated in this training.
  • Agriculture ~ This new 3 year project (second phase) is funded by the Food Resource Bank and is located in Patarkamh where World Renew also supports the community development work.  This project is designed to help farmers in better rice and vegetable production.
