Purpose, Hope, Dignity and Community for India's Women


Last year many of you joined KGM’s Fountain Community and your generosity helped grow our women pastor ministry from 15 to 29 – a 93% increase!

 In India, women are boldly accepting God’s plan for them to be leaders who model the purpose, hope, dignity, and community available to all in Christ. 

But they couldn’t do it without you. 

The Fountain Community is made up of ordinary people, pooling their resources to make an extraordinary impact for the Kingdom of God in India. We invite you to join us! Learn how you can become part of THE FOUNTAIN of blessings flowing from God through you to bless India and glorify Him.



You inspired your friends to join you and participate in Kerusomen’s Women’s Ministries. Because you did, last year you enabled us to invest 42% MORE in these powerful programs that rescue widows and give India’s women savings and earning opportunities. When you give to these ministries, you’re giving more than the obvious food, medicine, clothing, and training benefits. You’re giving purpose, hope, dignity, and community; empowering blessings that change every aspect of these women’s lives. And this International Women’s Day KGM India’s ladies say “thank you” to each and every one who played a part in showing God’s goodness to them.


Millions of Indian women grow up feeling broken, hopeless and of little value simply because they are female. You can minister to them by partnering in prayer with a woman pastor. Give these leaders the physical, emotional, and spiritual strength to bring God's comfort and truth to hurting hearts. Text Kathy at 561.358.7635 to learn more.

Friends Needing Friends Celebrates 12 Years of Love in Action


What do you love? After God, family, and friends, Dotti Ackerman’s answer to that question is one simple word: widows. That answer birthed the Florida ministry and impact partner we're proud to celebrate today.

It’s a love story inspired by God and lived out day after day, year after year by its incredible leaders. What’s it look like? Countless hours of relentless planning and sacrifice motivated by an unstoppable passion. All to empower widows in need of a friend with new hope and a community they can depend on and thrive in.

Friends Needing Friends Sisterhood of Widows  is a labor of love worth celebrating and today marks the 12-year anniversary of its beginning in Florida. We’re head over heels in love with both their work here and their generous spirit that allows Kerusomen to reach more widows in need in India.

Thank-you Friends Needing Friends Florida, for walking alongside us to demonstrate the life-transforming love of Jesus to the widows He loves so dearly. We are deeply grateful for you. Happy Anniversary!

Happy New Year

Before we turn the last calendar page on 2022, we’re remembering how faithful God has been this year through your prayers, your partnership, and your willingness to proclaim to others your passion for this ministry. Matthew 6:21 says, "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also" (NIV). These pictures of you over the last 12 months show clearly where your heart is: Your love for the Lord is reflected in each one. Thank you for standing with our KGM pastors and believers in India as they reach out to their people, helping them find hope in Jesus. We remain humbled and grateful for the victories the Lord is giving through you. Thank you and may God’s richest blessings be yours in 2023. Tom Caprio and the Kerusomen Board

Merry Christmas KGM Partners and Family


"Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people"
 (Luke 2:10 ESV, emphasis added).

Jesus came for all people. There’s not a soul on earth he doesn’t love—and today we want to thank you for sharing that Good News with His beloved unreached children in India. You and I are part of God's mission to make His glory known to the ends of the earth and in 2022, your prayers and partnership helped reach more Indian villages than ever before with God’s love. Bless you!

Having wonderful friends who love the Lord like you do is one of our greatest blessings.and a precious gift from God we cherish every day.

All glory to God and our love to you,

Give Chickens in Jesus Name

 KGM Volunteer Board Members cover all operating costs so 100% of your generous gift will bring income-producing animals directly to families in rural India. Whether you choose to join us by giving once, or monthly through Kerusomen's Fountain Community, we want you to have peace of mind about your stewardship.

Generosity and kindness are contagious – and you’re living proof! You stepped up last year and gave 500 chickens. Because you did, widow Kamala grew her flock from five to 23 and gave away 10 chickens to two struggling neighbors. She kept two roosters to continue growing her flock. Now Pastor Saha says she’s ready to give more away more offspring to other families in her village. That’s just ONE of the one hundred families who received flocks from you. Your loving example is birthing more backyard chicken businesses every day, as God continues to multiply your flocks (and your kindness!) to transform hearts and lives in India. Let’s do it again this year! The hunger crisis in India is massive. But together, we can change that.


Imagine how you would feel if you were living in abject poverty. What if your first priority - every single day - was to simply survive. You have no time or resources to improve your situation...what's the best way out?

What if I told you obtaining animals is the answer. Seem unlikely?  India's government considers it one of the best ways for poor families in rural areas to lift themselves out of poverty. 

Here's what these animals provide: 


Entire families can sustain themselves with the meat, nutrient-rich milk, or high-protein eggs that goats and chickens provide.


As the animals reproduce, families can sell the leftover milk, eggs, cheese, and butter. And when the flocks and herds flourish, the kids and chicks can be quickly sold for even more cash.


  • Family members incapacitated by disease can become productive again
  • Children can go to school
  • Better healthcare and medicine are more affordable
  • Families can consider improving their living conditions and dwellings
  • The miserable cycle of poverty ends and a new cycle of prosperity begins for future generations


Families must show they are serious about providing a sustainable food supply and/or extra income for themselves and their children. In order to show their interest, they contribute their own money to feed and build shelter for the animals. Women and widows, who are the head of their households, can also attend training classes that teach them to manage money and achieve basic business skills. 

Each family agrees to give first-born animals to help another needy family in their village and welcome regular visits from KGM pastors to check on the family’s progress towards self-sufficiency. This ensures that the Gifts of Hope program will have lasting results.

Thank you for changing my life

 We want you to have peace of mind about your stewardship. Whether you choose to join us by giving once, or monthly, KGM Volunteer Board Members cover all operating costs so 100% of your generous gift will bring income producing animals directly to downtrodden families in India.


"Thank you for changing my life."

Ancy and her widowed mother live in Kerala, India. KGM Pastor Simon says Ancy and her mother are "the poorest of the poor" struggling to make ends meet on less than $2.00 a day.
All of Ancy's life she has known poverty, for she and her family belong to one of the most underprivileged people groups in the area. As Nadars, Ancy is classified among the "other backward classes." Socially and educationally disadvantaged and often discriminated against, many Nadar remain trapped in misery for generations. With few opportunities and no dowry to attract a good husband, it looked like Ancy's future would be no different until the gift of a female goat changed everything. 

Ancy knew that raising goats could help her and her mother do more than just survive, they could actually help them get ahead. For ten months she carefully tended to the animal's needs and last month her efforts paid off: Ancy's goat had triplets! Two females and one male. The mother goat produces plenty of milk for Ancy's family and the extra she sells for income.  Ancy plans to keep the male kid for breeding and growing her flock. 

To Ancy, these goats are not only pets she loves, they are a gift from God and with hard work, a lifeline out of poverty.  To share her blessing, in a month she will return not one, but both female kids to KGM India and Pastor Simon will give them to two more impoverished families. 

In just 10 months your gift of one goat is changing the lives of three families in Ancy's village. And that's not all. With a 150-day reproduction cycle, a single female goat can produce seven to nine goats in just two years! Soon Ancy's offspring will give birth and more kids will return to Kerusomen amd more lives will be blessed. Now multiply that by the 135 goats you gave to other families and you begin to get a glimpse of the huge impact your gifts of love are already making. 

Thank you for caring for these hard-working widows and families like Ancy's in India. Bless you for empowering our KGM pastors to lighten their financial burden and give them hope of a future.
