(Children’s Help in India for Livelihood and Development)
The India Evangelistic Crusade financially supports approximately 300 students wherein they are provided stipend monthly assistance towards their education
Background : The children who are provided education under the assistance wing of the India Evangelistic Crusade namely CHILD (Children’s Help in India for Livelihood and Development) belong to interior village and towns and cities of the State of Sikkim, Assam, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and West Bengal. They belong to communities and people who survive below poverty financial level. Most of their parents work as coolies in forests and villages, as Tea garden labourer, factory and mills worker and small shop keepers and belong to mostly unemployed sections of society. The parents of these children are mere cultivators earning meager incomes not enough to feed even one person for a day, leave alone educate their children. Due to lack of substantial strength in providing education by themselves the India Evangelistic Crusade was/is approached by local people and persons in the village councils, through Pastors of Churches working in their areas.
