Native Indian women learning how to sew

Knit Together to Serve

Indian women living in isolated rural villages often lack the opportunities to receive a quality education or practical job training. A Christian Aid-assisted ministry is opening sewing centers so women can learn a trade and help support their families. Many of the women are Hindu or Muslim, and the centers serve as an outreach where they may hear the gospel for the first time. Currently the ministry needs 50 sewing machines for classes in two villages. Along with women´s outreach, the ministry trains missionaries and plants churches as part of its work in more than 200 villages in India.
