Mission field stories of changed lives drive us to Pray, Partner, and Proclaim God’s mighty works and love for India’s at-risk women more every year.
WHY KGM STANDS STRONGLY WITH INDIA'S WOMEN
In India, girls struggle in life from the day they are born until they die. Females are unwanted and considered of no value because they can’t pass down the family name.
Over 1.6 million were married before their 15th birthday. One and a half million adolescent Indian girls, are married every year.
Girls are so unwanted that: they get less medical care; are fed less than boys; and they are rarely allowed to go to school since household chores and taking care of siblings is “more important.”
27% of girls drop out of school every year simply because they lack clean hygiene for menstrual care.
This widespread cultural distain for women in India causes disturbing trends: India has the highest number of malnourished females in the world. Additionally, there are skyrocketing sexual crimes against women, and over 40 million abandoned widows.
Pastor Anju, India’s Director of KGM Women's Ministries, is absolutely determined to help India's women in practical ways that will last from generation to generation. She, together with 15 other KGM Women Pastors, work with women of all faiths.
These women are strong, tenacious, intelligent and motivated. They work hard every day to make a better life for themselves and their children – just as we do. The only difference is, we were born here, and they were born in India.
At the weekly meetings these women find companionship, encouragement, learn how to save, get skills training, and hear – perhaps for the first time – that they ARE VALUABLE because God, their Father, loves them.
BECOME A JOINT-AMBASSADOR OF GOD'S GRACE TO INDIA'S WOMEN
By the grace of God, we have the opportunity to intercede for these women pastors who serve India's at-risk women. By PRAYING for them, by PROCLAIMING God's works through them, and by PARTNERING financially to equip them, we will share in their joy as ambassadors of God's grace on the mission field.
