India, a country about a third the size of the United States is painted by deserts, jungles, mountains, and seashores. Within her boarders is three times the population of the United States. She is made up of 2,600 diverse people groups, each with their own unique culture and deep traditions. The belief system in India is a dominant 90% Hinduism and Islam. India's slogan depicts well her diversity, "Incredible India".
Beneath the diversity and incredibleness of this nation, a large number of the world's population of orphans roam the cities and villages of India, leaving them easy prey for child work and sex slavery. Their mothers face the fastest growing crime in the country, violence against women. Sexual abuse, kidnapping, and slavery not only threaten orphans, but also the 40 million widows of India.
The vast amount of physical, emotional and spiritual needs in the country of India has touched the hearts of many. Joining together, we can bring HELP and HOPE to the people of India.
