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: Ecological Sustainability
For many years, the tropical rain forests in Indonesia have been cleared mainly by palm oil companies. What remains is barren land and people stripped of their former source of livelihood. A Church on Sulawesi is reforesting land and helping farmers recover from poverty.
Korea: Ecological Centre
At the end of 2007, a tanker disaster before the coast of South Korea produced the worst oil spill catastrophe in the history of the country. In the aftermath, the population woke up to the immense importance of environmental protection and this led the Presbyterian Church in the Republic of Korea to establish an Ecological Centre.
