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: Waste Recycling in Bali
Awareness among the Indonesian population concerning the dangers of uncontrolled waste disposal is very low – at the same time, the island state produces more and more waste. The Christian Protestant Church in Bali has realised the problem and is taking action.
Indonesia: Sustainable Community Development
Sulawesi is one of the poorer islands in Indonesia. Religious conflicts, lack of food or the danger of AIDS are only some of the local problems. The churches are fighting intensively to sustainably improve the conditions of life in their parishes.
India: Women Empowerment Programme
In India, discrimination against Dalits and Adivasis still continues to this day. This is especially true for women who have adopted the Christian faith. The Church in South India takes care of these people.
