Daniel* is a SIFAT graduate, who works in community development in his home country of India and beyond.

Project: To equip evangelists and missionaries in India with best practices in community development and teach income generating skills, since they will initially be going into missionary work without pay.


This project, under the direction of SIFAT graduate Daniel*, is an extension of Project 22-01 and will help 280 evangelists and missionaries learn sustainable practices in community development that are integrated, viable and sustainable. Additionally, this project will teach evangelists and missionaries income generating skills that are needed to help them generate funds when they enter the mission field without an income source. They will learn how to produce products that can be sold, such as making detergent powder, multipurpose pain balm, liquid disinfectant, jewelry, candle making and sewing skills. The previous project successfully taught many of these same skills to 32 missionaries in training. These classes will be conducted in partnership with Christian institutions in southern India.

*Daniel is a pseudonym for our SIFAT graduate who works in India and other Asian countries. To protect his safety, we are using a different name.
