OUR 'FRIENDS OF THE POOR IN SOUTH INDIA is saving lives right now! The smallest donation helps a lot.

LIFE & DEATH APPEAL

The Lock-down in India is leaving our poor friends without food.   We are providing a life line.


       Please help us. 

Our workers are on the spot bringing in the good rice and giving it free to those in most need. 

The government donates  bad quaility rice which causes illness.

Hear the Families

say thankyou

to You!.

Friends of the Poor wants to make the work sustainable into the future.

That's why

OUR MAJOR ON-GOING APPEAL IS FOR A NEW BUILDING

I'm raising money to build a smart new Training Centre in India. 

THE NEW CENTRE will be built on Land already donated. It will be purpose-built to bring all the projects together in one place, ideally situated for our villagers – with a bus-stop outside! Programmes at present are crammed into inappropriate, rented buildings. The Centre will be fully equipped.  

SECURITY OFFERED at the Centre will be a new experience for the women who will attend. They are not allowed to sleep in their homes during menstruation but at those times they will be safe at the Centre. Similarly, the children will have no need to fear their dangerous surroundings

EVERY DAY it will teem with life. With adult training during the day and children coming in for evening tuition. It will engender a sense of pride for people who have had nothing to boast of all their lives – until now!

FEATURES will include: large training rooms, computer room, water purification for good health, good washing and toilet facilities, large campus, secure fencing, office, and kitchen, etc.

SELF-HELP GROUPS are the place the women learn to work together, as they learn a new skill and make decisions together. We have seen hopelessness turned to joyous fulfilment, and abject poverty replaced by sustainable family life.

SUSTAINABILITY is crucial, and the business plan shows that the Centre will easily pay for itself each year.

WE ARE RAISING MONEY NOW

to buid and equip the Centre.
It will be a struggle but

with your help even more lives will be transformed!.

THE TEAM IN INDIA is first-class, well-trained and directed. We are proud to be their sponsors, knowing that with a new Centre they will go from strength to strength – transforming the lives of the poor & deprived families
