Project of the month

India: Children's homes in South India

Children, and particularly girls, often lead difficult lives in India. The facilities offered by the Church of South India allow many to escape child labor and oppression.

Indonesia: Work with Handicapped Children

They are a "punishment from God". Children with handicaps in Indonesia still suffer from this reputation. A women's initiative of the Taraja Church breaks through the isolation of these children and stands up for their rights.

Japan: Prison Chaplaincy

When compared internationally, Japanese prisons have a very strict discipline. The United Church of Christ in Japan (KYODAN) visits people in prison and provides them with pastoral care.

Jordan: Integrated School for the Blind in Irbid

Many parents in Jordan are ashamed of their blind children and hide them away at home. An integrated school in Irbid gives these children prospects for the future – through elucidation and a decent education.
